PM acknowledges a breakdown of trust

Trudeau briefed reporters in Ottawa

"The Prime Minister was on and mentioned there were some lessons that had been learned, and moving forward we're still going to be about jobs and protecting jobs, and we also need to take a look at it and address any other issues that are out there".

The Trudeau Administration claims that it felt obligated to try to save Quebecois jobs after the company indicated that it might leave Canada if it was taken to court and that Wilson-Raybould's reshuffling in his Cabinet was a purely administrative affair and nothing political, though critics believe that the pressure that was placed upon her was entirely political and meant to keep Quebec in the liberal camp ahead of this October's general elections.

NO LOVE FOR TRUDEAU Apparently Justin Trudeau was not very good at doing his homework when he was in school, or he would have remembered Julius Caesar: "Beware the Ides of March" as well as "Et tu, Brute?" "I thought it was important that everybody had their say", Sheehan said.

"If reconciliation is really the government's primary goal and responsibility ..."

By extension she has endorsed the former attorney general's refusal to overrule that decision.

"Even though I heard she made a decision, I asked her if she could revisit that decision".

NDP MP Tracey Ramsey pointed to the thousands of other Canadians who she said the current government has done little to nothing to remedy. "However, I now understand that she saw it differently".

Trudeau blamed the crisis on an "erosion of trust" between his office and the cabinet.

"I think he needed to apologize to Canadians", said Watt. They denied this to be the case.

Qualtrough, the minister in charge of federal procurement, told a Commons committee last week the government wants more flexibility in the regime for dealing with companies that have integrity problems.

But Scheer is also waging a daily war on Trudeau's scandal-rocked government, accused of political interference in a criminal case involving Quebec engineering giant SNC-Lavalin, leading to the recent resignations of two key cabinet members.

In 2015, Montreal-based SNC-Lavalin was charged by Canadian authorities in connection with allegedly using bribes to secure business deals in Muammar Gaddafi-era Libya. A federal court judge has ruled the director of public prosecutions' decision to bring SNC-Lavalin to trial on charges of fraud and corruption, rather than to negotiate a "remediation agreement" as the company preferred, was a proper exercise of her prosecutorial discretion.




The former justice minister has alleged she was improperly pressured to stop the criminal prosecution and was punished for refusing by being moved to the veterans affairs portfolio.

Trudeau responded to the Globe report by telling the news media that his government did not "direct" her on the matter.

Wilson-Raybould decided not to do so and eventually resigned from cabinet. She hired a renowned lawyer but declined to say more.

It did not work.

"We considered she was still open to hearing different arguments, different approaches on what her decision could be".

On Wednesday, Butts offered testimony of his own.

Trudeau's principal secretary Gerald Butts stepped down in wake of the scandal, though he denied any wrongdoing.

Wilson-Raybould said she did not consider officials had broken any laws, so a probe by police is unlikely.

"We're hoping that this campaign will have the same effect - that the pressure will force Justin Trudeau to allow her to come and testify".

In identical letters, the opposition members said that Wilson-Raybould "provided clear and convincing testimony" when she appeared, while Butts and Wernick "provided testimony that, while lacking the credibility of Ms. Wilson-Raybould, was in parts contradictory".

Then he was off to catch a flight to his next engagement: an official apology over a historical injustice.
