The transcript of the portion of the interview that was hacked up into Freeland's Tweet.  The highlighted portions are the bits that made it into the clip.  You can decide for yourself whether you feel the snippet in Freeland's video captures the spirit of what O'Toole is actually saying. I don't believe it does. I highly doubt that Freeland did the video editing herself for this; I assume it was conceived and executed up by the Liberal war room.  Still, she did put her name on it. I thought she was better than this.

I think you have to sell your soul at the door in order to become any kind of success in politics, it's the cost of admission.  When you see bad things happening you have to smile and look the other way and repeat the party line.  It's similar with being a cop.  There are no "good cops" because anyone who shuts up and goes along when bad things are being done isn't a "good cop".  Anyone with any moral conviction is quickly filtered out, because they're forced to quit since one person at the bottom can't change anything in such systems.  Show me a cabinet member in any of our governments who isn't a careerist sociopath.

Canada has some of the weakest whistleblower protections among similar democratic nations, its time we ask why, and who does it serve?
I queef, therefore I am.
