Trudeau violated ethics act during SNC-Lavalin affair: Report | Special coverage


100 comments

It is time to break all the laws, Mr Trudeau since you can so that all the pipelines can be built. It's for job security for over 300,000 unemployed Albertans.

Wow, what's up CBC? We can actually comment on this one. Gee thx. What's this gonna cost us?

This will blow over very quickly and the lap dogs will vote this waste of skin in again. He can lie to all the swooning women cuz they just don't care, he's still such a stellar feminist 🤡
Yeah right, NDP is the answer. That's part of the reason the two horse race is still alive and well.

Is the CBC allowed to say anything negative about Castro's son? It only took someone with a TON of PC points could pull it off…love based Indians…

So how fast does Justina pull the hundreds of millions he stole and used to pay off the media…guess they stabbed him in the back just like they did the general public…

Yes, we all know what happened:

(1) he and his tried to force JWR multiple times to change her decision on DPP's decision on the DPA for SNC (broke the law!);
(2) when he and his were unsuccessful in getting JWR to change her decision, JT removed her from the AG job (didn't get the answer he wanted from JWR, so out she goes); and
(3) JT appointed Lamentii as the new AG (surprise, surprise). Lamentii is from Montreal representing the riding right next door to the SNC headquarters.

It is very important to know that JT and Lamentii still have never declared that they will stand by and support the DPA decision made by the DPP last year, where the DPP decided against using a DPA for the SNC case. Instead, they say the decision is still outstanding, which means to me, that they are waiting to get the election behind them, and if they are still in power, Lamentii will overrule the DPP on it's 2018 decision on not using a DPA for the SNC case. If this happens, I understand this will be the first time in Canadian history where an AG has overruled a DPP decision. Yikes!

From my perspective, it was equally illegal for JT to pull JWR out of the AG job just because he did not get the answer from her that he wanted. This is his second major transgression of our justice system. JT has never ever explained adequately what his reasons were to pull JWR from the AG job. He said he wanted to put her into Indian Affairs. We know this is not true since it is absurd to think that JWR would take this new role one knowing it's mandate to to enforce the Indian Act. She has always been clear that she is not supportive of the Indian Act.

Totally unbelievable that the others in the Liberal party are tolerating all of this. Guess the other Liberal MPs are more interested in getting elected than they care about the protection of our justice system.

Don't you find interesting that when it comes to potential job losses Trudeau is very much concerned about Quebec, the West? Not so much.

Any time the Liberals are in power the real capital of Canada is La Belle province.

I really thought that Dion was a Liberal lapdog. Turns out he intended to do his job, much to Trudeau's surprise and chagrin. Wonder how long it will take Trudeau to demote him, just as he did JWR.

The Jagster makes a good point(s) about the lobbying, SNC 30 some-odd/Sakler et al. 600 some-odd "special" meetings; not endorsing the NDP, just the cogent point of law!

LOL “We didn’t find the right balance between not breaking the law and breaking the law – I mean standing up for jobs.”

Hanlon's Razor: "never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity". At best it was incompetence, at worst malice, and I'm not buying the incompetence plea.

Why am I not surprised that this was the finding? Canadians with more than two brain cells knew this was the case a long time ago….funny thing is is that there are a lot of people out there that still buy into the Liberals kool Aid. WTF???

Trudeau stated that he accepts full responsibility for the report but without consequence that statement means nothing.

Going forward from this 'again ' (as mths ago I stated) I disagree that 'the deferred prosecution ' doesn't need to be separated. It's new and has proved to be controversially. Had we not had Mrs Wilson willing to basically stand up at the cost of her job and being kicked out of the Liberal party SNC would have got their way as would have the ruling party and Trudeau himself. If the party in charge can appoint the Attorney General and they now have the power to intervene on cases like SNC then companies that support them can be protected and those that don't will not need to be saved. The potential for inappropriate interference is available. Structured 'conflict of interest ' so to speak. In most cases a well chosen malleable appointee Attorney General by whomever is in power will help his party by backing their needs. And apparently if they don't they get fired. Separate separate separate. Since this new sweet deal allows companies another way out that the average Canadian doesn't get. At least try to get it away from obvious political interference. D.G.

CBC reporting truth? I think they are being smart in doing a 180 turn against the Liberals and favoring the PC party because they know that the PC will win the election which means the PC party will be their next boss. I say privatize CBC!

Omar Khan showed just how foolish he is . His condescending attitude while making pathetic excuses for our sad sorry Prime Minister is shameful.To say the liberals decision to oust the AG was good and just is nothing short of appalling.
He then goes on to say that the increase in taxes for the 1% helped us all pay less and that is a full on lie. The numbers are out and they show that the middle class is now paying more in taxes than when Trudeau was elected. He then tries to connect Doug Ford to Sheer and drops Harpers name in the mix.
Funny how the liberal on the panel sounds like a raving lunatic and the conservative is thoughtful, well spoken and calmly secure in his communication.
The Prime Minister shows up with a smirk on his face. One mistake is unforgivable when you are a Prime Minister with legal advisors available.
This was intentional and really when everything is stripped away nothing more than the Prime Minister of canada accepting a bribe from SNC.

So basically sorry.. not sorry!!!…..liberals/NDP/Dems (US) are all crooked liars, they think they are above the law with nonsensical ideologies and actions!!!

he can't apologize for defending jobs ? he just doesn't get what he's done, for any reason. If he cares about business/jobs then stop taxing the crap out of us and wasting money.

Considering the timing, I bet this whole thing is staged courtesy of the Cons. to win the election!…People need to wake up, and see the hook behind the worm!

He need's to be removed from Parliament immediately and a full investigation started from the RCMP. The Ethics found him guilty, the law can finish.

So….guilty, he is guilty. Using the word contravene in the header makes it sound not as bad as it is. Not everyone will sit down and listen intently and they are counting on that, sneaky move.

"There are only two people on the ballot who can be prime minister"? You're right, the leader of the Liberals was just caught breaking the law and can't even attract those last 100 candidates – as an incumbent. Guess it's between Scheer and Max Bernier. #PPC2019

The RCMP need to lay charges against Wernick, Butts and Turdeau for obstruction of justice and serve them all the max sentence of 10 years to set an example that messing with the Canadian Judiciary wont be tolerated.

Where are the handcuffs??? Why is Turdeau above the LAW ??!! Anyone that did these things in the private sector would get a huge jail sentence!!!!! This is so WRONG AND EVIL!!!!

This Liberal government is the worst party as far as performance, and corruption. If you vote for this party again Canada is in trouble!

judging by the comments, i think the liberals are not going to win the election… also no one is crying impeach so i don't even know if you can impeach a prime minister

GUILTY…….HE'S GUILTY……SAY IT CBC ……..the guy is a liar……. to Canadians he said…."Nothing to see here"    as much as Clinton swore to the Americans "I NEVER touched Monica Lewinsky" They found him GUILTY…….use the words CBC………oh wait 600 million certainly softens how you feel about this clown.   HE NEEDS TO GO

"How are you girls at CBC doing, it must be hard spin on this"! ?Couldn't BE put any better SUSAN, GOOD ONE! Hahahaha!

So he got busted,finally-its all the other things he's done and not getting busted for that's concerning.Now,they want to go to Hong Kong,they've been to Venezuela,are going to Uganda,not allowed in China and the USA just don't want him.He is just fine as a door mat.

RCMP never confirms if there is an investigation, yet CBC news was publishing articles on RCMP investigating the UCP nomination process irregularities during the past Alberta election campaign cycle.

He needs to stop spewing this crap about saving jobs! He was trying to save a corrupt Quebec company that donates thousands to the equally corrupt Liberal Party coffers.

This will make the election debates interesting if the panels setting the questions have not been influenced by or tampered with by the liberals.

so when it comes to an some international conventions (OECD anti-corruption treaty) but QC jobs, suddenly international conventions are a gray area…

but when it comes to other international conventions (CA-US extradition treaty) but AB, SK, and BC jobs, suddenly we are the global stewards of international conventions…

it's even worse because though neither international convention is actually binding or has genuine enforcement mechanisms, the OECD one is supported by an actual Canadian law — so Trudeau was willing to play loose with both an international law but a real Canadian law — whereas the CA-US one has zero actual legal binding enforcement mechanism or otherwise actual Canadian law enforcing it.

CBC, your complicit in this cover up. Just like all the other cover ups for this drama teacher. This you can't ignore or spin. Trudeau cash can't save you here. You people who call yourselves journalists shouldn't have let this go under the rug the first go round. Your still being disingenuous in your reporting of this. Trudeau is going down for bigger reasons. News travels across borders. Your hoping Canadians aren't watching and your credibility has been eroded.

Thats like saying I shoplift to save the jobs of Security guards. I speed to save jobs for the RCMP. Really dont understand how people can be so blind to this corrupt government.

Anybody notice that all the parties are saying don't vote for them. but none of them have a message of what they'll do for us as taxpayers

Old news, minds are made up! However it is not who votes, it is who counts the votes. If Trudeau is elected this will cause a revolution in Canada like the rest of the world. Hummm! So possible

SNC-Lavalin is the largest construction company by revenue in all of Canada as of 2018. The firm has over 50,000 employees worldwide with offices in over 50 countries and operations in over 160 countries.

Privatize CBC! CBC will only report on issues that agree with the ruling government's agenda because they get their funding from the government. Now that the leadership of the Liberal party is looking shaky CBC does a flip to now devour the Liberals! Ok by me! BUT I do not like my tax dollars to support any completely government funded media. It only leads to propoganda in the worse way.

PPC is Canada's only hope to keep Canadians free. Sheer is a weak globalist and will destroy us just like Truedue is.

CBC is sweating because once Truedue is punted out they might be on the street looking for a job without their liberal funding. PPC for the win!! DUFUND AND ELIMINATE THE CBC!!!

Do some research and look at what Trudeau has done since in office; and then ask yourself; why would any sane person vote for this crazy fool?

I knew from the day of his election that Trudeau would be a huge mistake for Canada. Harper wasn't doing all that great but this is far worse. Trudeau needs to face jail for what he's done. NDP is starting to appear more appealing as a result. I have been a Conservative my whole life but this is just…

Folks just experienced things differently than Justajoke. Enough of the joker October 21. Let’s all experience Canada differently than under the stewardship of a clown.

We can't give Ms. Meng because of rule of law
We can give SNC money because they provide jobs
I dont get it.
Which is it, can we start breaking laws just like you Mr. Trudeau and say it was for a job and I am not apologetic? Or am I supposed to stick to the law because rule of law?
Make up your mind Trudeau. I think most Canadians made up theirs, probably leaning towards a CONSISTENT and FAIR rule of law.

CBC BLOCKED ME FROM ASKING TRUDEAU A QUESTION ON A LIVESTREAM IN CALGARY ALBERTA. I AM A TRUTH SEEKER LIKE NO OTHER I STAND FOR GOOD AN JUST. NOTHING LIKE THEY DO THEY LIE CHEAT AN STEAL FROM WE THE PEOPLE PROMOTING PROGANDA DAILY IS THERE ONLY OBJECTIVE. WHY WE ALLOW THEM TO CONTINUE THEIR EVIL WAYS IS BEYOND ME. I WOULD LIKE TO SEE EVERYONE BOYCOTT CBC BECAUSE OF THIS. THEY HAVENT BROUGHT US A BREAKING NEWS STORY EVER. REPORTERS PROBABLY HAVE GOLDMINES OF INFO ON ALL SORTS OF PEOPLE AN PEOPLES ILLEGAL ACTIVITIES. FUNNY HOW YOU HERE ONLY THE BAD THINGS POLITICIANS DO AROUND ELECTION TIME WHY ARE THESE STORIES KEPT UNDER WRAPS DO SOME POLITICIANS NOT FALL IN LINE WITH THE BIG AGENDA OF THE CABAL? SO THEY BEGIN A SMEER CAMPAIGN. WHY IS IT CBC DOENST REPORT ON PEDOPHILA IN HIGH PLACES SO MANY CHURCH GOERS SEEK REMORSE AN WISH TO REPENT THEIR SINS. FOR THEIR DISGUSTING ACTIONS ON CHILDREN WHILE THEY SIT IN HIGH PLACES. I HAVE LOST MY FAITH FOR THE MEDIA AN HAVE BEGUN. SHARING MY INCITE AN MY DETECTIVE SKILLS WITH THE WORLD TEACHING THEM ALL HOW TO DIG FOR TRUTH WITH KEYWORDS BEING DEFINED OR DELVED INTO. I LOVE ALL PEOPLE I WISH ALL PEOPLE COULD LOVE!
