Trudeau addresses the SNC-Lavalin affair
Justin Trudeau met with media this morning to address the growing SNC-Lavalin controversy. Trudeau highlighted an “erosion of trust” between the Prime Minister’s office and former Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould.
The Prime Minister stood pat on his decision making during the affair, declaring that “there was no inappropriate pressure” during discussions with the former Justice Minister about the handling of the SNC-Lavalin case.
Recently, Conservative leader Andrew Scheer called for the Prime Minister to resign, citing in a tweet that Trudeau has “lot the moral authority to govern”
Meanwhile, NDP leader Jagmeet Singh criticized Trudeau’s statement, noting that the erosion of trust is not just between the Prime Ministers Office and Wilson-Raybould, but rather “the ‘erosion of trust’ is with Canadians.”
