Jody Wilson-Raybould spoke her truth to the justice committee, about the pressure she felt from various officials, all the way to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, about SNC-Lavalin’s desire to avoid a criminal corruption trial.
The Vancouver-Granville Liberal MP, who was Canada’s first indigenous attorney general, explained what went on behind the scenes over a four-month period. The four hours of testimony allowed Canadians to better understand how Wilson-Raybould became the former attorney general. She was asked twice whether she had confidence in Trudeau. Neither time she answered in the affirmative. Former federal and provincial attorneys general have complained to the RCMP, seeking an investigation.
