Ethics Commissioner: Trudeau Broke Conflict Of Interest Rules In SNC Lavalin Affair

National | by Bayshore News Staff  
The report by Mario Dion says evidence showed there were many ways the P-M either directly, or through the actions of those under his direction, sought to influence the Attorney General.

Canada's ethics commissioner has found that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau broke conflict of interest rules by using his position to try and influence former Attorney-General Jody Wilson Raybould in the SNC Lavalin affair.

The report by Mario Dion released earlier today says evidence showed there were many ways the P-M either directly, or through the actions of those under his direction, sought to influence the Attorney General.

Jody Wilson Raybould was booted from Liberal caucus this spring -- weeks after she insisted in a Justice Committee testimony Trudeau and other senior government officials had pressured her to seek a deferred prosecution agreement for SNC Lavalin -- so the company could avoid criminal proceedings on fraud and corruption charges.
