first to go she says trudeau and senior government figures had pressured her to stop the prosecution of s. and c. level lawyer for i experienced a consistent and sustained effort by many people within the government to seek to politically interfere in the exercise of prosecutorial discretion in my role as the attorney general of canada traduced denies any wrongdoing but his popularity is sliding with elections that for october he's now polling behind the rival conservatives it's got more on this from campbell clockers chief political writer account of this globe and mail newspaper which broke the scandal welcome to day w tell us more about justin trudeau is response to these allegations. i think part of the problem has been that he hasn't had much response he has sort of dribbled out answers over time and first denying that he had pressured or had directed the
10:04 pm
attorney general to interfere in the prosecution and then when she testified. in front of commons committee he didn't respond other than to say she he disagreed with her characterization of events we haven't really heard just and you know and you know people expected him to be the kind of open frank different kind of politician and the fact that he sort of hiding behind you know the old politicians barrier and saying little is part of the problem so as an attorney general and i'm a finance minister that those are two significant resignations i'm more likely to follow it doesn't appear that more likely to follow that at the moment there are one or two in cabinet that we think probably sympathized with the well the first one being the minister of justice a very general jury will will sit raybold so that it seems they're all on board for now these are two very important cabinet ministers not only because of their positions but because of who they were joined also rebuilt was the first indigenous

10:08 pm
i think it's important because as we can see in eastern europe there are more and more parties like victor organs in hungary nationalist parties that are against freedom of the press against freedom of democracy because meanwhile in berlin a long time ally of friends an official statement from german chancellor angela merkel spokesperson said the german government supports the quote lively discussion about the orientation of the e.u. micron's proposals also prompted calls from germany's opposition for berlin to show more of its own initiative one of the you will most of the government must finally wake up from its hibernation in european politics i just currently acting according to them or to which european project or reshooting died this week be it the digital tax be a whistleblower protection. with european elections just three months away but when is widely supported micron's calls to prevent the manipulation of elections ones that stay here i already see what's being demanded of democracy as i'd never have
10:09 pm
imagined a couple of years ago or that we're really in a situation again we were having to fight for democracy so that is certainly a step in the right direction. but in the lift at least as a strong it's important to do something but i don't know if an agency for democracy would be the right thing because i had a feeling while some italians in rome supported a united europe now everyone is convinced that mccrone is the man to steer the e.u. back on track. i welcome the european union. i welcome a reconciliation with friends with germany because italy in europe and europe. italy. is a euro foil so you can definitely create a more pro european atmosphere but as leader of europe i don't know it's all in hungary however the far right populist government dismissed macros call for voters
10:10 pm
to rejects nationalists in coming over p. and elections voters too seemed less concerned. but you know. i think it will be somewhere in the middle i don't believe that the extreme right will make such big gains that's what i think but i'm not an expert on that. but. while some critics complain that mccrone suggestions don't go far enough towards solving europe's problems others claim that his appeal aims only to fuel one thing his personal campaign for main european elections. three of the most prominent players from germany twenty fourteen world cup winning squad received some bad news on tuesday. by coach you're in love that they'll play no pots a japanese upcoming qualification for euro two thousand and twenty this is the first major step in the coach's plan to hit the beach stop on his team. for years they
10:11 pm
took to the pitch for germany and were pillars of the twenty fourteen world cup winning squad forward thomas miller twenty nine and the two thirty year old defenders months ramos and jerome boa tang all currently employed by by in munich but now their international career is coming to an end after last year's disastrous world cup. is finally making radical changes. in the year of qualifying for the european championship twenty twenty we are sending out a clear signal the young national team players will have the space they need to fully develop they have to take responsibility now. thank you even at byron munich the three players have dealt with frequent injuries and delivered modest performances so lives decision did not come completely out of the blue as suggested by boa tens reaction on twitter i'm sad about this news because it has always been
10:12 pm
the greatest thing for me to represent my country however i respect the new course and understand the decision of the national team coach now boa tang and homos will have to make room for the next generation. from d w a sport welcome tom so we just heard your him love talking about sending a clear signal so it's a p.r. stunt i think p.r. stunt may be a bit much i think this is an argument in favor of the interpretation that you know this is. a lot about the signals in the messages that it's sent and not necessarily just about the sporting aspect of keeping these players in the sport or getting rid of them. you know has to show that he's taking real significant steps to draw a line under the disastrous world cup that germany produced last summer he's promised drastic change for
10:13 pm
a long time he's promised that he was really going to put the past to bed and you know make a clean break with what went before and this is actually to be honest the first time we see anything really materialize of that the fact even the u.s. the move is still in this job is obviously a pretty strong element of continuity with what went before the world cup and he can't afford to keep all the same players because then really nothing has changed what you know you might expect to see when a player ends their career in the national team is that they get gradually phased out but you walk in love went down to munich today had a meeting with all of these three players and told them that basically they're getting forced into retirement so is obviously a pretty bold move in a fairly radical step to take which means that the youngsters in the squad now see that opportunity who is who is coming up through the ranks absolutely will germany of course have got plenty of young talent i mean one year before the world cup there was the confederations cup and you have to move to a very young squad it's about twenty one in russia and they blew all of their
10:14 pm
opposition out of water so there's plenty of talent waiting to step in and fill the shoes the homo's boateng and. was family first and that's almost of course leave behind at the back players like. nicholas who we've started to see emerge in the national team in recent times anyway of course antonio rudy goes also a big figure for germany in the defense. going forward you know. whose exclusion from the world cup squad was really kind of symbolic for germany's you know argand's going into that tournament team event of course going forward so you can say plenty of young talent weigh in to fill these empty boots of the coach keeps his job three three longstanding players get thrown out of the home that is a bit worse thank you. play where hundreds of thousands of flocked to the tuscan coast for the last day of a kind of volley d.v.r. i view huge crowds lined the streets for the city's annual conical parade which is
