Sun columnist apologizes to Phoenix inquiry judge for video

  • Print

Winnipeg Sun columnist Tom Brodbeck appeared before a judge presiding over an inquiry into the death of Phoenix Sinclair.

Brodbeck appeared before retired judge Ted Hughes Friday morning over posting video taken Wednesday of the room where the inquiry proceedings are happening. This week, hearings are taking place on a proposed publication ban that would shield the identities of social workers involved with five-year-old Sinclair before she was murdered in 2005.

Brodbeck told Hughes allegations he filmed the proceedings were false, but he did film the room Wednesday when the hearing wasn't taking place.

The video was later posted to the Winnipeg Sun website.

Brodbeck apologized to the judge, who called Brodbeck's actions "disappointing" but accepted the apology and said he considered the incident a "one-off." The hearings continue today.

Now that former cabinet minister Theresa Oswald has entered the NDP leadership race, do you believe the "gang of five" rebel ministers were right to publicly criticize Premier Greg Selinger's leadership?
