CONSERVATIVE Party Leader Andrew Scheer on Tuesday lashed out at Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for his “refusal” to let former attorney general Jody Wilson-Raybould speak freely with members of the Justice Committee.
“Justin Trudeau is trying to trick Canadians into believing he is letting Ms. Wilson-Raybould speak freely. In reality, however, he is still hiding information he doesn’t want Canadians to know.
“We know that there was an unwanted, coordinated and sustained effort by the Prime Minister himself to get the former Attorney General to change her mind, to overrule the independent Crown prosecutor and stop SNC-Lavalin’s criminal case from going to trial. He can no longer avoid this. He must stop hiding behind privilege and let Ms. Wilson-Raybould speak freely. Canadians deserve answers.”
