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.


realestatereviews.ca/news/trudeau-pmo-staff-hire-outside-lawyers-in-case-of-snc-lavalin-probe-the-globe-and-mail/

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:

So...

The most partisan non-partisan weasel Wernick decides to bail too.
Good riddance IMHO.
Quite a few fleeing the sinking liberal ship it would seem:

https://www.bnnbloomberg.ca/canada-s-top-bureaucrat-michael-wernick-retires-amid-snc-scandal-1.1230681

And on other fronts, just after Pierre's Idiot Child and many of his closest Incompetents Lawyered Up, the liberals on the SNC Justice Committee voted to shut that down. Forever. No more testimony from anyone. The Job Is Done. :thumbdown:

If they think for a second that will make it all go away, they're even more brain dead than I gave them credit for... :evil:

The Liberals can’t be pleased that the SNC-Lavalin affair has now lasted as long as a Biblical wandering-of-the-desert. And it’s not that they haven’t tried to move on. It’s just that they don’t seem to be very good at it. They’d better hope that the budget absolutely knocks it out of the park with the voters, because the opposition isn’t going to give up on this.

https://www.msn.com/en-ca/news/politics/the-liberals-just-cant-quit-the-snc-lavalin-scandal/ar-BBUYznR

But of course admitting that your party has ZERO interest in EVER balancing the budget ain't so much "knocking it out of the park"... :lol:

And... Yet another liberal Woman Walks...

Celina Caesar-Chavannes has informed Prime Minister Justin Trudeau that she’s leaving the federal Liberal caucus and will sit as an independent MP.

“The prime minister is really good at yelling and screaming at women, as the member from Whitby knows, and he’s also a very good actor. But, Mr. Speaker, he’s a fake feminist,” Bergen told the House of Commons.

The chief executive of SNC-Lavalin Group Inc. says he never cited the protection of 9,000 Canadian jobs as a reason the company should be granted a remediation agreement to avoid a criminal trial on allegations it paid millions of dollars in bribes to obtain government business in Libya.

“This thing that somehow they’re going to be unemployed is not true because they are highly qualified, highly experienced people.”

He said there’s no plans to move the company’s headquarters from Montreal...

Jane Philpott: ‘There’s much more to the story that needs to be told’

In an exclusive interview with Paul Wells, the former Treasury Board president says: ‘we actually owe it to Canadians as politicians to ensure that they have the truth.’

If nothing wrong took place, then why don’t we waive privilege on the whole issue and let those who have something to say on it speak their minds and share their stories?


https://www.macleans.ca/politics/ottawa/jane-philpott-theres-much-more-to-the-story-that-needs-to-be-told/

Interesting in that the source, McLean's, used to have the liberals back in a substantial way prior to the last couple of months...

Pardon my French, prime minister, but if you think that your efforts to coverup, stonewall, “re-communicate”, or “change the channel” on your role in authoring the LavScam fiasco will work, they won’t. It’s getting clearer by the day that you, sir, are f#*ked.

With those words, Bruce has effectively implied that Canada’s prime minister is either a liar, or was hopelessly ill-informed by his senior staffers. Either way, it begs for an RCMP investigation and for a thorough review by the ethics committee.

In a new letter to the House Justice Committee, former Liberal cabinet minister Jody Wilson-Raybould says that she will provide additional evidence and a written statement on the SNC-Lavalin affair, even though its probe has concluded.

We have been suffocated for the last three weeks or so with their new pseudo-slogan: “this government will always value jobs and respect for the rule of law.” The line goes on – we only did, what we did, if we did it, because there were 9,000 jobs at stake if SNC-Lavalin faced criminal prosecution. (Never mind that the 9,000 figure has been deeply discounted.)

The irony here, the discrepancy between their response to the devastation of the Canadian energy industry, and a perceived threat to one company (with an extremely dubious record) in Quebec, is massive. And so it was noted. A comparatively few jobs in one region and the full power and machinery of the Canadian government goes into high gear, and potentially even illegal behaviour, while a continuous, far more extensive economic crisis, gets virtually ignored.

If an election were held tomorrow, Trudeau would receive only 31 per cent of the decided popular vote — down three points from a couple of weeks ago — while Conservative Party Leader Andrew Scheer would receive 40 per cent...
