It doesn't sound like Sheer is going to back down. :bc:  Like the article reads, the longer Trudope and the rest of his cronies delay or come clean, the more guilty he looks. I'm thinking he is painted into a corner and has no clue how to go forward from this. He has been absent in Parliament the last couple days. https://torontosun.com/opinion/columnists/guest-column-andrew-scheer-wonders-what-trudeau-hiding-in-snc-lavalin-affair

Wilson-Raybould has claimed solicitor-client privilege prevents her from disclosing the advice she gave to the government in the SNC-Lavalin matter. So, I personally wrote to Trudeau demanding he waive that privilege, as prime ministers both Liberal and Conservative have done in the past when Canadians demanded answers on matters of ethics and public confidence.

However, given the stonewall treatment we’ve encountered thus far, his blithe contempt for past pledges of transparency, and the willingness of his new Attorney General to protect him, I’m not optimistic he will do so.

Which naturally begs the question of what Trudeau is trying to hide. In his only public statement on the matter, he repeated a carefully crafted and legally vetted line which, in essence, claimed his innocence in the matter.

If he is innocent, if Trudeau is indeed telling the truth, waiving privilege and having his officials testify at committee would surely absolve him and his office of any wrongdoing.

The longer he and his government avoid accountability, the more it looks like he is covering up the truth.

SNC-Lavelin a Trudeau foundation donor?

A huge one, plus they are based in Quebec and you know how much Trudope loves Quebec.

This was quoted by a reader in the Globe.  If true it really shows just how corrupt the Trudeau government really is.

The law regarding remediation agreement was created last year for the purpose of saving SNC-Lavalin from criminal prosecution. That was a political maneuver by the government, so that today SNC-Lavalin could avoid prosecution according to "rule of law". This law was created to benefit large corporations, the so-called "too big to fail". Would it be fair to create a different set of laws to benefit smaller companies from prosecution too?

Exactly. 

If only everyone involved would be prosecuted. Including the media.

I read that too. A law specifically made up to pay a fine instead of a criminal investigation/conviction. How fucked up is that! You're allowed to cheat and break rules as long as you pay a fine. If this law wouldn't open the doors for other companies to do this, I'm not sure what would!
