Trudeau lying about SNC


Recommended Posts

Pressure to consider options isn’t illegal.  It’s inappropriate.  The decision was hers to make, so when she made a bad one, Trudeau shuffled her to another Ministry.  He can do that.  

Acutally, I am surprised to find that it is not illegal. Anyway, JT should back off, then he would pardon (???) SNC later. It is because JT does not want to be the bad guy.

Then why did he try so hard to conceal it ?    Why didn't Trudeau proudly announce and describe what he and Butts had done to "save Canadian jobs" ?

Ya, that was the same ans when someone asked JT about the SNC's $30,000 escorts fees

In your own words :  "bring" jobs, and in second instance "create" and...etc.

Are you for real?

Corporations create jobs, don't they?  They  also bring jobs in, don't they?

Emergency debate  this PM but he won't resign and  and rumor is they'll announce a universal drug plan and a  guaranteed income plan   which means he will manage to buy votes with freebies.  People prefer freebies to ethics and integrity.

Agreed...this fiasco will damage Trudeau's brand but it will not bring him down.   

Sales for "Rule of Law" bumper stickers will be down.

No, I expect an MP to stand up for his or her constituents, the SNC workers of Papineau.  

Then as PM why did he not stand up for the 160,000 oil workers in alberta that lost everything. ? The left wing seems to have forgotten about them.

This could, plus we have the admirals cases coming up next and that could very well be another political interference case. That one goes right into the election. And this affects the east coast. Plus the pot heads have legal weed, they will not be showing up. And women are very upset ,now that they know they were used by the great feminist PM. And once all the dumb trudeau quotes start coming out ,to remind people he hates all canadians.

....and Trudeau will put corporations above the law!   As long as it helps him!

Are you aware that DPAs are covered under the Criminal Code of Canada (i.e., the law)? And did you know a politician working to help his constituents has traditionally been considered a good thing?

For him, BC and Alb are lost causes now. He needs Que / Ont for second term. Any MP / PM who has a sound mind will distance himself / herself from that company.

Trudeau has tried to dig in supporting Alberta, but he’s up against BC eco warriors, the new Luddites, who are shutting down resource development and work itself.  Pipelines and corporations are being thwarted in BC and Quebec.  JWR’s jurists are attempting to usurp Trudeau’s populists and throw the book at business.

DPAs fall under the Criminal Code of Canada. That is the law.

Trying to force the prosecution to change their decision on a criminal case is obstruction of justice. That's the law too.

Trudeau is a new Luddite. Those are his allies.

BC is certainly not a lost cause. That's why he is holding up the pipelines.

Trudeau is just trying to have it both ways, supporting resource development and battling climate change at the same time.  I agree with walking that line.  But can he deliver on resources and the environment?  Can he deliver on one of those things?

5 attorneys general have written  to the rcmp asking for a criminal investigation

Four of them were Conservative and one NDP.  Nevertheless the Liberals are in trouble.  A house divided against itself cannot stand.  Echoes of Paul Martin as PM and the sponsorship scandal.

Some of the Liberal MPs are digging a bigger hole by insisting on rationalizing corruption and obstruction to save jobs, as if saving jobs trumps the law.

 

You know as well as I do that the premise of DPA’s is that many innocent workers shouldn’t suffer because of the corrupt actions of a few.  

Butts has asked to testify and he has been granted permission.  All 11 implicated should have a chance to say their peace.  While I think they’re all scoundrels, I’m undecided as to who is worse, Trudeau and his minions for applying pressure to the Justice Minister or the minister herself for not seeking the remediation of a DPA.  

SNC will either fold or move its head office out of Canada because of this mismanagement.  So who is worse, Wilson-Raybould for her pride and ideological opposition to DPA’s or Trudeau for pressuring and shuffling out Wilson-Raybould because he didn’t like her refusal to pursue a DPA for SNC?

Because this is mostly about opinion, I think JT will survive as leader unless the Liberals lose the election, very possible now.

That isn't the issue here....the issue is direct interference with and the obstruction of justice.

This government will not fall...yet.

Whether he did or did not is something for him to worry about.  Wilson-Raybould said he didn’t break the law.  Scheer has asked the RCMP to investigate along with the five former AG’s.  The RCMP isn’t confirming or denying whether they are investigating, so maybe they are.  

I still care more about the thousands of workers who may lose their jobs at SNC.  I’m sure you’re licking your chops at snapping up those head offices in the US. 

The other business is entertaining, but the public will decide the fate of these 11 players at the next election.  Couldn’t care less really.  Another political scandal.  Live by the sword, die by the sword.

No, I don't care what happens to SNC...a few thousand jobs means a lot more in Canada than in the U.S.

I am not moved by the jobs argument because of other domestic policy issues and decisions that have/will have a much greater impact on Canadian jobs, and not just for Quebec favourite SNC-Lavalin.  

I agree that it is very fun to watch Trudeau and his band of sleaze twist in the wind.
