The clouds are circling around Prime Minister Justin “Sunny Ways” Trudeau in the form of a scandal regarding Canada’s largest construction company: SNC-Lavalin, based in Trudeau’s home province of Quebec.
The Prime Minister’s Office, officials and even the Prime Minister himself have been accused of pressuring the then Attorney General and Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould to override the Director of Public Prosecution and give SNC-Lavalin a walk on bribery and fraud charges during an election year. When she didn’t, she was fired.
She did not go quietly.
