In all the press coverage of the “the SNC-Lavalin affair,” not enough attention has been paid to the company’s involvement in Site C – the contentious $11 billion dam being constructed in B.C.’s Peace River valley.

VERY Interesting...

There is enough info on SNC to read for weeks. But that's smoke and mirrors to deflect from the problems the government is putting forth for themselves. SNC can conduct itself any way it likes, the courts will take care of that.
It's the lying, cheating, silencing that has gone on that is truly concerning. The more and more they try to hide from it the worse it looks. Is it any different from any other government, probably not. But the way it's been handled is the true issue.
It's easy for the media to call it the "SNC scandal" but really SNC is just an involved entity at this point. All they did was break the law.

Iacobucci led SNC-Lavalin‘s efforts to secure a ‘Deferred Prosecution Agreement’ last summer and into the fall. He was instrumental in persuading Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to insert the new legal provision as a policy rider into last year’s budget bill, acting as SNC Lavalin’s in-house attorney.

Last August, Iacobucci ‘demanded’ a Deferred Prosecution Agreement for SNC Lavalin, even dictating to Finance Minister Bill Morneau the terms that his client ‘would accept’ from the Trudeau government. Sources close to Morneau say that’s a familiar posture for Iacobucci, who months earlier helped colleagues at Torys ‘bully’ Morneau into acquiring Kinder Morgan‘s Trans Mountain Pipeline in May — on terms that CEO Steve Kean would accept.

When Wilson-Raybould refused to offer his client the legal mechanism that he lobbied to invent, he was livid. Iacobucci regularly communicates with Morneau and the former Treasury Board President Scott Brison. He was not shy about articulating his displeasure with the Attorney General to either man.

Trudeau, PMO staff hire outside lawyers in case of SNC-Lavalin probe

Mr. Trudeau’s communications director, Cameron Ahmad, told The Globe and Mail on Friday that Treasury Board rules allow for hiring of outside counsel when government officials are either sued, threatened with a suit, charged with an offence or under threat of being named in a legal action.

None of this would have happened if any of them had paid heed to the law – for instance, using “jobs” as an excuse to enter into a Deferred Prosecution Agreement is expressly prohibited in bribery cases (as this is) and Article Five of the OECD Anti-Bribery Working Group Convention (which Canada has signed).

They didn’t talk to any lawyers at the start. Because of that, they’re now going to be talking to lawyers all the time.

To, you know, keep themselves out of jail.

Yep. No "legs". Nothing to see here... :lol:
