Bill Kelly: SNC-Lavalin affair has
Justin Trudeau on defence again



Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Monday he had asked Justice Minister David Lametti to provide recommendations on whether solicitor-client privilege should be waived which could allow Jody Wilson-Raybould to confirm or deny allegations of interference in the SNC-Lavalin case.



Make no mistake about it — there are serious allegations to be answered about how Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s government dealt with the legal problems of Quebec mega-company SNC-Lavalin.

It’s highly likely that the issue was discussed by the prime minister and senior cabinet members, but that’s not unusual given the possible ramifications if SNC-Lavalin has the book thrown at it for influence peddling and bribery on foreign soil.

Such an outcome could be catastrophic for thousands of Canadian workers and investors and any Canadian government would be concerned.


So, the question isn’t whether discussions took place, but rather, what the nature of those discussions was.

If then-attorney general Jody Wilson-Raybould was informing the prime minister about her policy on the issue, or discussing options, that’s fair game apparently. But if anyone was trying to exert pressure on Wilson-Raybould to influence the legal proceedings, they crossed the line.

Of course, the opposition parties, like a shark smelling blood in the water, are demanding a parliamentary hearing into the matter. But such hearings usually become a political circus where the facts are overshadowed by political bombast from all three political parties.

Because of the “he said, she’s not talking” scenario that has developed, we may never get the whole story about what took place. And with an election on the horizon, this is fodder for one more attack ad for the opposition and one more problem for the government.
