Jody Wilson-Raybould Releasing Book Before Federal Election

Book will be called “From Where I Stand: Rebuilding Indigenous Nations for a Stronger Canada.”

Independent MP Jody Wilson-Raybould, who was removed as Attorney General and kicked out of the Liberal Party for refusing to do Justin Trudeau’s devious bidding, will be releasing a book.

Titled, “From Where I Stand: Rebuilding Indigenous Nations for a Stronger Canada,” the book will be released September 20th, 2019, ahead of the federal election.

Here’s part of what UBC Press – the book publisher – says in a press release announcing the book:

“In this powerful book, Jody Wilson-Raybould draws on her speeches and other writings to argue that true reconciliation will occur only when Canada moves beyond denial, recognizes Indigenous Rights, and replaces the Indian Act. The good news is that there are solutions. Now it is time to act, to end the legacy of colonialism and replace it with a future built on foundations of trust, cooperation, and Indigenous self-government.”

While there is no word on whether the book will address the Trudeau PMO SNC-Lavalin Scandal directly, a supportive quote for the book mentions the “political pressure” she faced:

“From Where I Stand is a must-read book for all Canadians. Puglaas shares a clear understanding of where we have come from, the issues we must address, and the pathways to a transformed future. Having witnessed her remarkable courage and capacity as Canada’s attorney general and her determination to do what is right without succumbing to unrelenting political pressure, Puglaas stands tall among Canadians as a person for whom truth, thoughtfulness, and principle are not mere words – but values to sustain a different kind of policy and politics.”

– Mary Ellen Turpel-Lafond (Aki-Kwe), Professor of Law, Allard Law School UBC, and Director of the Residential School History and Dialogue Centre”

If Wilson-Raybould does go into detail on the Scandal, it will certainly be a most hotly-anticipated political book as the election nears.

To continue your final sentence: …and if she doesn’t, her book won’t matter all that much to the Liberal fortunes.

Jody Wilson – Reybould already has a book out there written with her husband, before politics began in her life, according to an article Conrad Black wrote, but I have not read it, but certainly thought about it, but could not find a copy? So looking forward to this book, when it comes out.
