The truth is finally out about the federal Liberal government’s obsession with saving SNC-Lavalin from criminal prosecution, even if it meant the government (potentially) breaking the law itself.Prime Minister Justin Trudeau still isn’t convinced. Even after his former justice minister Jody Wilson-Raybould’s damning testimony before the Commons Justice committee on Wednesday, the PM insists nothing untoward was done.Thursday, the always glib Trudeau told reporters he was “definitely not in agreement” with Wilson-Raybould that she and her staff suffered “consistent and sustained” pressure to interfere politically in the federal prosecution of SNC on corruption charges.Trudeau, however, was later forced to admit he hadn’t “reviewed” what Wilson-Raybould actually said.(How, then, could Trudeau disagree with Wilson-Raybould’s testimony if he hadn’t paid attention to it? Perhaps someone on his staff provided the PM with a described-video version.)Anyway, other than Trudeau and some hardcore Libs on social media, almost no one who bothered to review the Vancouver MP’s remarks came away with the impression she had fabricated her testimony. There were high-level attempts to force her to give the Montreal engineering and construction giant a free pass in court just to keep it from moving head office jobs to another country and to help Liberal re-election efforts.The attempts at political interference were blatant and crass — and possibly even illegal.Wilson Raybould testified the prime minister himself, his former principal secretary, Gerald Butts; the clerk of the Privy Council, Michael Wernick; one of Trudeau’s top policy advisers, Mathieu Bouchard; one of Finance Minister Bill Morneau’s closest advisers, Ben Chin, the PM’s chief of staff, Katie Telford and others were in on meetings or email exchanges during the last four months of 2018 in which unrelenting pressure was put on Wilson-Raybould to find a way to keep SNC from being prosecuted and thereby raise the federal and provincial Liberals’ chances of being re-elected in Quebec.According to Wilson-Raybould on Wednesday, offers were even made to find her an outside law firm that would give her “independent” legal advice saying that SNC qualified for a deferred prosecution agreement, that the federal director of public prosecutions (DPP) was wrong when she said they didn’t, and that the Justice minister possessed the authority to overrule the DPP.And if that weren’t enough, Wilson-Raybould also claimed people around Trudeau offered to have Liberal-friendly journalists write columns or file news stories commending her for salvaging SNC and Quebec jobs if she went along with their scheme to subvert the Canadian justice system.Time and again, according to Wilson-Raybould, Trudeau and others told her to get on board with a plea deal for SNC for political, not legal reasons. Furthermore, despite what Clerk of the Privy Council Michael Wernick claimed in his own earlier testimony, this clearly constituted “inappropriate pressure.”But Canadians almost didn’t get to hear from Wilson-Raybould. We almost never got to know the involvement of Trudeau, Butts, Bouchard, Wernick, Chin, Telford and others because of Edmonton Centre Liberal MP Randy Boissonnault.Two weeks ago, when the SNC scandal first broke, Edmonton’s own Boissonnault led efforts at the Justice committee to keep Wilson-Raybould from testifying. He sneered that opposition attempts to summon her and most of the Liberals now fully implicated were nothing more than a “witch hunt” and a “fishing expedition.”What’s more, Boissonnault insisted a Commons committee is “not an investigative body” and lacked the budget to hear from all these potential witnesses.Boissonnault put every effort into protecting his party from the political and legal consequences of their SNC plot.I only wish Boissonnault put half as much effort into standing up for Alberta’s pipelines as he has defending Justin Trudeau et al from public scrutiny.
