News Staff | posted Friday, May 31st, 2019

Toronto police have released a security image of a suspect being sought in connection to a sexual assault on a TTC bus.

Police say a 14-year-old girl was riding the bus in the Finch Avenue East and Brimley Road area on Monday, March 18, 2019 at around 9:30 p.m., when a man sat next to her.

Police allege the man sexually assaulted the teen before exiting the bus at Finch Station.

He’s described as 40 to 45 years-old, five foot tall, clean shaven with black hair. He was wearing a dark colored heavy jacket, was carrying a green backpack, and spoke Vietnamese.

Siakam leads Raptors to NBA Finals Game 1 win over Warriors

The Canadian Press | posted Friday, May 31st, 2019

Two years removed from toiling in the NBA’s G League, Pascal Siakam led the Toronto Raptors to an historic victory on Thursday.

The 25-year-old from Cameroon scored 32 points to lift the Raptors to a thrilling 118-109 victory over defending champion Golden State Warriors, giving Toronto a 1-0 lead in its NBA Finals debut.

Kawhi Leonard had 23 points on 5-for-14 shooting against a swarming, smothering Warriors defence.

Marc Gasol, who was acquired at February’s trade deadline to help the Raptors’ playoff push, had 20 points and seven rebounds before fouling out of the game with 1:14 to play.

Kyle Lowry finished with nine assists but just seven points. Fred VanVleet had 15 points, while Danny Green shrugged off the shooting slump that plagued him in the conference finals to finish with 11.

After Game 1, Raptors coach Nick Nurse recalled how Siakam came to the gym after the team was eliminated in the playoffs two years ago and said “Listen, I need to learn how to shoot.”

“He was extremely hard working,” Nurse said. “Just super, super committed to finding a place in this league and improving his game.”

Game 2 is Sunday before the Finals shift to Oakland, Calif., for Games 3 and 4.

Stephen Curry had 34 points to lead the Warriors, who are making their fifth consecutive Finals appearance, and are by far the more experienced squad, boasting a combined 140 Finals games between them, compared to Toronto’s 38.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr was full of praise for the Raptors.

“They played a great game, they deserved to win,” Kerr said. “We’ve got to play better if we’re going to beat them.”

Kerr had talked about the magnitude of the Finals compared to the first three rounds of the playoffs.

“It’s just different,” he said in his pre-game press conference. “Everything about it feels different. It completely takes you out of your comfort zone.”

The Raptors though seemed thoroughly comfortable in the moment. While the Warriors hadn’t played in 10 days after sweeping Portland in the west finals, Toronto rode the momentum of four straight wins against Milwaukee in the Eastern finals, cobbling together a 10-point lead in the first half, and stretching it to 12 by the third quarter. The Raptors led 88-81 with one quarter left.

Golden State pulled to within three early in the fourth. But when Lowry hurled a long pass to Siakam for an easy basket, it put Toronto up by seven. Green’s three-pointer with 7:31 to play made it a 12-point game, and brought the delighted capacity crowd of 19,983 fans, including golfer Bubba Watson, out of their seats.

The Raptors matched the Warriors virtually shot for shot down the stretch, and when VanVeet’s long jumper circled around the rim, as the crowd held its collective breath, before dropping with 3:21 to play, Toronto went back up by a dozen.

Golden State would pull to within seven with just over a minute to play, but the win was already well in hand. Lowry drilled an icing-on-the-cake three with 30 seconds to play and the crowed erupted.

“Our goal was to get one (in Toronto) and it’s still on the table for us,” Warriors guard Klay Thomspon said. “I know we’ll respond like the champions we are.”

Drake, who’s been a lightning rod in the post-season for his on-court antics, came dressed in a No. 30 Dell Curry jersey. Dell (Steph Curry’s dad) played for the Raptors from 1999 to 2002.

Siakam’s points were the most by a player 25 or younger in their Finals debut since 2012 (Kevin Durant, 36 points for Oklahoma City).

It was a night of firsts. The first NBA Finals for the Raptors, a story 24 years in the writing. It’s was the first NBA Finals game held outside the United States, and so the first time “O Canada” was sung at an NBA Finals – performed by The Tenors. The celebratory Scotiabank Arena fans were so loud, they entirely drowned out the Tenors by the anthem’s final few words.

Jordan Smith, winner of Season 9 of “The Voice,” sang the U.S. national anthem.

According to several online ticket agencies, it was the most expensive Game 1 in NBA history. The average resale price was about US$1,360, almost double the average price of last season’s Game 1 between the Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers.

Every logo in Raptors history was splashed across the giveaway T-shirts.

Lowry said it was the loudest he had ever heard the building.

“It was pretty crazy in there tonight,” he said. “We’ve got the best fans in the NBA and they’re just showing it every single night.”

Six Raptors scored in a first quarter that saw Toronto race out to a seven-point lead. A running dunk by Thompson capped an 8-0 Warriors run that had the visitors up by a point. Toronto replied with a 7-0 run and led 25-21 heading into the second.

The Raptors shot 65 per cent in the second quarter, and when Green connected on a three-pointer with 11 seconds left, the bucket sent Toronto into the halftime break with a 59-49 lead as chants of “Dan-ny!” rained down from the crowd.

Outside the arena, thousands of festive fans packed Jurassic Park, many of whom had been there at dawn to line up.

Raptors alumni were honoured at centre-court during a timeout, including the team’s first general manager Isiah Thomas, plus Muggsy Bogues, Charles Oakley, Jerome (JYD) Williams, Dell Curry, Tracy McGrady, Morris Peterson, Chris Bosh, and a Year 1 Raptor Damon Stoudamire.

Rapper Kardinal Offishall performed “The Anthem,” his ode to Toronto, during a timeout. Rapper ASAP Ferg performed at halftime.

In his pre-game press conference, NBA commissioner talked about the Finals being a full-circle moment. The first NBA game was played between the Toronto Huskies and New York Knickerbockers at Maple Leaf Gardens in 1946.

The presence of a non-American team, he said, might be felt on a global scale.

“Symbolically having our first Finals outside the United States maybe has a big impact on countries that follow the NBA but don’t have teams,” Silver said. “This clearly is a marker of sorts that here we are 2019, our Game 1 of the Finals taking place in Toronto, Canada. That will be a milestone.

“It’s come full circle in terms of basketball being invented by a Canadian.”

Trump slaps Mexico with 5 per cent tariff in response to migrants

Jill Colvin and Colleen Long, The Associated Press | posted Friday, May 31st, 2019

In a surprise announcement that could compromise a major trade deal, President Donald Trump announced Thursday that he is slapping a 5 per cent tariff on all Mexican imports, effective June 10, to pressure the country to do more to crack down on the surge of Central American migrants trying to cross the U.S. border.

He said the percentage will gradually increase – up to 25 per cent – “until the Illegal Immigration problem is remedied.”

The decision showed the administration going to new lengths, and looking for new levers, to pressure Mexico to take action – even if those risk upending other policy priorities, like the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement, a trade deal that is the cornerstone of Trump’s legislative agenda and beneficial to his reelection effort.

Trump made the announcement by tweet after telling reporters earlier Thursday that he was planning “a major statement” that would be his “biggest” so far on the border.

“On June 10th, the United States will impose a 5 per cent Tariff on all goods coming into our Country from Mexico, until such time as illegal migrants coming through Mexico, and into our Country, STOP. The Tariff will gradually increase until the Illegal Immigration problem is remedied,” he wrote, “at which time the Tariffs will be removed.”

Trump has accused the Mexican government of failing to do enough to halt the flow of asylum-seekers from countries including El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala. And he has been itching to take increasingly radical, headline-grabbing action on the issue, which he sees as critical to his 2020 reelection campaign because it energizes his base.

But the sudden tariff threat comes at a peculiar time, given how hard the administration has been pushing for passage of the USMCA, which would update the North American Free Trade Agreement. It comes less than two weeks after Trump lifted import taxes on Mexican and Canadian steel and aluminum, a move that seemed to clear an obstacle to passage of his North American trade deal, and the same day that both the Mexican government and the Trump administration began the process of seeking ratification. The deal needs approval from lawmakers in all three countries for it to be ratified.

Daniel Ujczo, an international trade lawyer based in Ohio, said the move puts lawmakers who want to vote “yes” in an awkward position because companies in their home states will end up paying the tariffs. And it could slow down the deal’s ratification in Mexico, where President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador on Thursday requested a special session of the Senate, which is in recess, to consider the matter.

“The tariffs certainly put the USMCA on ice,” said Gary Hufbauer, an expert in trade law at the Peterson Institute for International Economics, who said Trump has the power to impose the tariffs under the International Emergency Economic Powers Act by citing a national emergency, which Trump did.

“The drama is legal, but it’s preposterous,” he said.

Still, Ujczo and others wondered whether Trump – who has a habit of creating problems and then claiming credit when he rushes in to solve them – would go through with the threat.

“This seems more theatre and tactics than a strategy to solve the migration crisis and rebalance North American trade,” Ujczo said.

In late March, Trump threatened to shut the entire U.S.-Mexico border if Mexico didn’t immediately halt illegal immigration. Just a few days later, however, he backed off the threat, saying he was pleased with steps Mexico had taken in recent days. It was unclear, however, what Mexico had changed.

Indeed, on a briefing call with reporters Thursday evening, administration officials said there were several things Mexico could do immediately to prevent the tariffs from kicking in, including securing their southern border with Guatemala and entering into a “safe third country agreement” that would make it difficult for those who enter Mexico from other countries to claim asylum in the U.S.

“We’re going to judge success here by the number of people crossing the border and that number needs to start coming down immediately, in a significant and substantial number,” said acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney.

He also insisted that tariffs were “completely” separate “and apart from the USMCA” because one pertained to trade and the other immigration.

“The two are absolutely not linked,” he said.

In Mexico, trade negotiator Jesus Seade responded with a mix of alarm and dismissal. He called the matter “most serious” but also downplayed the likelihood the tariffs would go into effect.

“It is no secret to anyone that Trump is very active in his use of Twitter and he launches many tweets that are later changed,” he said.

The threat drew a withering response from Republican Rep. Sen. Chuck Grassley, a usual Trump ally, who slammed it as “a misuse of presidential tariff authority” that would burden American consumers and “seriously jeopardize passage of USMCA.”

Mulvaney said the White House had briefed some Republican members of Congress on the plan and acknowledged that some — particularly in the Senate – had raised concerns about the president invoking such powers.

Trump’s tariff threat comes at a time when Mexican authorities have been stepping up their efforts, carrying out migrant raids and detaining thousands of people travelling through the country en route to the U.S.

The crumbling city of Tapachula, near the Guatemalan border, has become the epicenter of the crackdowns. Thousands of migrants have been stranded in the city because the Mexican government isn’t providing them visas that allow them to travel. Authorities this week have also been clearing out parks of camping migrants and raiding hotels where immigrants were staying.

In addition, the Mexican government has allowed the U.S. to send back hundreds of asylum seekers from Central America and other countries to force them to wait their cases out in Mexico.

But that hasn’t satisfied Trump, whose White House laid out an escalating schedule of tariff increases if his demands are not met.

“If the illegal migration crisis is alleviated through effective actions taken by Mexico, to be determined in our sole discretion and judgment, the Tariffs will be removed,” the White House said in a statement. Otherwise, the 5 per cent figure will increase to 10 per cent on July 1, to 15 per cent on Aug. 1, to 20 per cent on Sept. 1 and to 25 per cent on Oct. 1, the White House said.

“Tariffs will permanently remain at the 25 per cent level unless and until Mexico substantially stops the illegal inflow of aliens coming through its territory,” the statement read.

During a visit to Canada on Thursday to promote the trade deal, Vice-President Mike Pence voiced optimism, vowing it would be passed this year. Asked by reporters about the impact of possible new tariffs, Pence said that both Mexico and Congress need to do more and that Trump is determined to use his authority to get them to do so.

“The President is absolutely determined to use the authorities that he has as president to call on the Congress and to call on Mexico to do more to address this humanitarian crisis on our southern border,” Pence said.

James Sears fires lawyer; sentencing for Your Ward News delayed

Colin Perkel, The Canadian Press | posted Friday, May 31st, 2019

A convicted hate-monger who was due to be sentenced on Friday has fired his lawyer and will instead try to raise a constitutional challenge before he is sentenced in mid-July.

In an interview on Thursday, James Sears, editor of Your Ward News, said he plans to raise arguments about ineffective help from his lawyer, Dean Embry. Sears said Embry refused to ask certain questions or call any experts.

“I’m beginning to believe this was all predetermined and my own lawyer threw the case,” Sears said. “Something just didn’t sit right.”

Embry, who unsuccessfully defended Sears against charges of wilfully promoting hatred against women and Jews, confirmed he was no longer acting for his client. He refused to discuss what might have prompted the situation citing solicitor-client privilege. The lawyer did deny doing anything adverse to Sears’ interests.

“I didn’t throw the case, I can say that,” Embry said.

Sears, 55, and publisher LeRoy St. Germaine, 74, were each found guilty in January of two counts – promoting hatred against women and Jews – for the contents of 22 issues of Your Ward News. Court heard the paper had a circulation of 300,000 in the Toronto area and beyond as well as an online presence.

Among other things, the publication depicted in words and imagery beyond-vile stereotypes of Jews, denied the Holocaust, claimed women were inferior and that they bring rape on themselves.

The Crown called for the maximum six-months jail term for each offence to be served consecutively – one year behind bars – plus three years probation during which Sears would be prohibited from publishing any kind of written material. The defence argued a four-month conditional sentence would be appropriate.

Prosecutor Robin Flumerfelt confirmed Sears’ sentencing had been postponed until July 15 – the day Ontario Court Judge Richard Blouin is due to hear sentencing submissions for St. Germaine – but refused to comment on any constitutional challenge.

Sears told The Canadian Press he was in court on Monday to have Embry removed as counsel. He also said he would proceed now without a lawyer in his effort to have the law struck down.

At a hearing in April, Sears argued Your Ward News gave hope to the otherwise voiceless, saying it provided a safety valve for men who might otherwise resort to violence.

However, Crown lawyer Erica Whitford cited several victim-impact and community-impact statements in which people expressed how finding the free paper on their doorsteps made them feel unsafe, vulnerable and in some cases retraumatized.

Sears, a married father, was found guilty of sexual assault in the 1990s and lost his licence to practise medicine over sexual impropriety with female patients.

Embry argued there was no evidence Your Ward News had caused actual harm and warned that barring Sears from publishing any material could be unconstitutional.

The activist group called Standing Together Against Mailing Prejudice said on Thursday Your Ward News has spent years on Holocaust denial, anti-gay and anti-women hate, and flagrant racism.

“Sears is an unabashed Hitler enthusiast, and has called the gas chambers at Auschwitz a ‘lie’,” the group said.

Air Canada agent right to deny boarding over expired passport, court rules

Colin Perkel, The Canadian Press | posted Thursday, May 30th, 2019

A man whose Canadian passport expired while he was abroad cannot recover any of the costs he racked up after Air Canada refused to let him board his return flight, an Ontario court has ruled.

In its decision, the small claims court found that Gerald Gartner was the author of his own misfortune because he should have ensured his document was valid before trying to fly back to Toronto from St. Lucia.

“The plaintiff was responsible for failing to check his own passport,” Deputy Judge David Dwoskin said in his ruling in Ottawa. “Air Canada determined in good faith that it was required by applicable law or government regulation … to refuse to carry the plaintiff.”

The case arose in January last year when an Air Canada gate agent prevented Gartner from boarding his return flight because his passport had expired while he was there. He tried showing the agent his driver’s licence, health card and birth certificate — to no avail.

Gartner sued Air Canada for the $8,062.23 he said he spent in courier and other costs getting a renewed travel document as well as for a hotel and taxi fares. Among other things, he alleged Air Canada was in breach of contract by barring him from the flight he had reserved, and negligent in failing to train its out-of-country employees properly on the constitutional right of Canadian citizens to enter the country.

In its defence, Air Canada pointed to its terms and conditions of carriage, which, among other things, state that a valid passport is required for return travel to Canada.

The carrier also told court the Canada Border Services Agency had instructed airlines that gate agents can only accept valid passports as an international travel document and passengers cannot board a flight without one.

While border officials may allow travellers who have arrived in Canada to use other documents to enter the country, airline personnel are neither border agents nor trained as such, Dwoskin said.

The judge also found Gartner’s damages claim for more than $8,000 to cover the expenses he incurred for a new passport and a “lengthy stay at what appears to be a premium hotel” in St. Lucia to have been excessive.

Despite losing his case, Gartner did escape having to pay Air Canada any of its trial costs. Dwoskin said that was because of the “novel circumstances of the case and the public interest respecting the issues raised.”

He did say he would reconsider the costs issue if either side could show it had made a reasonable offer to settle before trial.

Feverish efforts to stem flooding on Toronto Islands as wind storm approaches

Michael Talbot | posted Thursday, May 30th, 2019

Around-the-clock efforts continue on the Toronto Islands as city staff and residents desperately try to stem ever-rising water levels in the face of an impending wind storm.

In an update Wednesday afternoon from Ward’s Island, Coun. Joe Cressy maintained that the Islands would remain open for the summer season, despite being besieged by ominously-rising waters that have breached sandbagging efforts in some parts of the urban archipelago.

“This is a distressing time for island residents and island business, there’s no sugar coating it,” Cressy said. “But unlike 2017 when we were forced to close down the Islands, we are going to make sure they stay open and safe.”

Cressy said 15,000 sand bags are already in place, along with metre bags, 30 sump pumps, and aqua dams.

While Cressy considers those efforts crucial, he also sees them as a band-aid fix to the larger issue of climate change, and he’s hoping a report due for publication on June 21 will lead the city towards more sustainable solutions.

The city commissioned the report on long-term climate change adaptation and resilience measures with the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) after the devastating Islands flooding in 2017 that shuttered the popular tourist destination and caused extensive property damage to homes and businesses.

“In an era of escalating climate change … an annual sandbagging effort is not and cannot be the solution,” Cressy said.

“As the local councillor I am not satisfied with having my residents every year going out and sandbagging their front doors in order to keep their properties and their friends and families safe.

“We see that climate change is real, it is happening daily and it’s not just Toronto,” he added. “But if we don’t get in front of it the water will consume us.”

The anxiety on the Islands will only increase over the coming days, with powerful winds expected Thursday that could produce large waves.

“We are anticipating a major storm system coming through with large waves and wind action,” said James Dann, manager of Waterfront Parks.

“That northwest wind is particularly problematic for Algonquin Island, so we have more metre bags being put out today.”

Dann said a section of Hanlan’s Island has been closed after water filled the roadway. All ferry traffic is currently taking place on Ward’s Island only.

Despite the impending storm and rising water levels, he remains optimistic.

“Centre Island is predominantly dry, Centreville (amusement park) is opened, the restaurant’s been able to opened,” he said. “Our major concern over the next 48 hours will be the island residents, then we will focus back onto the roads to make sure we are able to stay open and operational for the remainder of 2019.”

Trudeau to raise abortion laws with Pence amid push to ratify new NAFTA

Mike Blanchfield, Mia Rabson, and The Canadian Press | posted Thursday, May 30th, 2019

The spectre of abortion hangs over the home stretch of Canada’s plans to finally ratify the new North American trade agreement after a tumultuous and at times bitter negotiation with the United States.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Wednesday he intends to raise the “backsliding” of women’s rights in the U.S. with Vice-President Mike Pence when he arrives in Ottawa on Thursday – a visit intended to push the “new NAFTA” over the legislative finish line.

The government introduced its legislation to ratify the new deal on Wednesday ahead of Pence’s meeting with Trudeau. But with the rush of anti-abortion laws being passed in multiple U.S. states in recent weeks, that divisive social issue is nudging its way onto his agenda with Trudeau.

Trudeau said his discussion with the U.S. vice-president will mostly be on trade but that he will bring up the issue with Pence, who is a well-known opponent of abortion.

Numerous states have passed anti-abortion laws in recent weeks, attempting to force the U.S. Supreme Court to reconsider its decision in the landmark 1973 Roe vs. Wade case that provides constitutional protection for a woman’s right to choose to have an abortion. Alabama is set to make it a felony for doctors to perform abortions with penalties of up to 99 years in prison, while Georgia, Ohio, Kentucky and Mississippi are among the states trying to get laws through banning abortion when a fetal heartbeat can be detected.

“Obviously, I’m very concerned with the situation around the backsliding of women’s rights that we’re seeing through Conservative movements here in Canada, in the United States and around the world. I will have a broad conversation with the vice-president,” Trudeau said Wednesday.

The Liberals are trying to use the anti-abortion laws being pushed by conservative politicians in the United States as a political weapon against Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer, who has said he will not reopen the abortion debate in Canada should he become prime minister in the fall.

On Wednesday after question period, Bloc Quebecois MP Monique Pauze attempted to get unanimous consent to have Parliament vote on a motion in favour of standing up for a woman’s right to abortion. The attempt was met by a long and loud ovation from Liberal, NDP, Bloc and Green MPs but the only Conservative seen to join the applause was Sylvie Boucher from Quebec.

Pauze did not get unanimous consent so her motion didn’t make it to the floor of the House of Commons for debate.

Conservative foreign-affairs critic Erin O’Toole said Wednesday he doesn’t think Trudeau should bring abortion up with Pence in what is supposed to be a discussion about trade.

“A lot of our diplomatic relationships have been frayed largely because of Mr. Trudeau, his own brand, his progressive agenda,” O’Toole said.

The U.S. debate on abortion is not happening in Canada, O’Toole said.

“Look, the U.S. can do what they want. They have a healthy debate on a whole range of issues that will never come into our debate here in Canada and that’s the way it should be. What upsets me about the Liberals is they will use foreign politics like that, as an attack line on us and I think Canadians are now seeing through that.”

The overriding economic concern for Trudeau is to bring closure to the contentious renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement that President Donald Trump foisted on his continental allies.

Trudeau said earlier this week that Canada intends to align its ratification process “very much” with the time frame of the U.S. Congress, an institution that finds itself riven by partisan rancour.

But with fewer than 20 possible sitting days left in the parliamentary calendar before the House of Commons rises for the summer, it is unclear whether Canada will ratify the agreement before the October federal election.

In a speech to the Commons for the introduction of the ratification bill Wednesday afternoon, Trudeau recalled the tough slog in negotiating with the pro-protectionist Trump administration, whose president calls NAFTA the worst trade deal ever and threatened to tear it up many times.

Trudeau also celebrated Canada’s success in getting the punitive U.S. tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum lifted recently, which he said removed the final hurdle in ratifying the new trade deal.

“Canadians are nice reasonable people, but we won’t be pushed around,” said Trudeau.

Trudeau said the government succeeded by putting together a coalition of businesses, provincial premiers, unions and “even a former prime minister” – a reference to Brian Mulroney, who threw support behind the government’s attempts to negotiate with the mercurial Trump. Mulroney and Trump are Florida neighbours and Mulroney was given unprecedented access to the Liberal cabinet to offer insights on how to deal with him.

“Our partners are tough negotiators … but Canada always stood firm and we refused to back down,” said Trudeau.

But the country came together as “as one Team Canada,” the prime minister added.

“That’s how we’re moving forward today with this legislation – as one Team Canada,” he said. “It’s now time for the members of this House to ratify it.”

Scheer attacked the deal in question period, knowing that the ratification bill was coming.

“The greatest threat to Canada’s trading relationship with the United States is the weakness of the prime minister,” he said. “Any old deal would have been better than the deal that he came home with. Concession, after concession on dairy, on autos, on pharmaceuticals and now in order to get steel tariffs lifted, he had to give away the only piece of leverage that Canada had. He has actually agreed not to put strategic tariffs on other U.S. industries.”

Trudeau shot back that if the Liberals had just capitulated to the United States, they’d have had a deal much sooner.

Rescued US woman blames Joshua Boyle for Afghan capture

The Associated Press | posted Thursday, May 30th, 2019

An American woman rescued from Afghanistan two years ago describes her estranged husband as controlling and abusive and blames him for events leading to their capture.

Caitlan Coleman told ABC-TV she was more afraid of Joshua Boyle than their Taliban-affiliated captors.

Boyle’s trial began in March on charges he assaulted Coleman after their arrival in Canada. He has pleaded not guilty but the trial has been suspended pending an appeal.

She has testified he subjected her to mental and physical abuse.

Canadian broadcaster CBC says his lawyer suggested at trial in Ottawa, Ontario, she fabricated abuse claims, which she denied.

Coleman tells the CBC Boyle took the best years of her life. She’s living in the United States and has custody of their children.

Boyle’s lawyer says it’s inappropriate for Coleman to give interviews during the trial.
