thePodcast: SNC-Lavalin, RCMP and Canada’s broken access to information system

For the week of June 25, 2023:

When Justin Trudeau came to power in 2015, he promised disclosure by default. He also promised an ethical Liberal government.

In 2019, the SNC-Lavalin scandal exploded and dominated headlines for months before that year’s federal election. The RCMP started an investigation after former Attorney General Jody Wilson-Raybould blew the whistle.

Duff Conacher, co-founder of Democracy Watch, wanted to know what became of the investigation. In a response to an access to information request, the RCMP told him the investigation continues. Then the RCMP changed its tune and said it closed the investigation and gave Conacher incorrect information.

Conacher is the guest of thePodcast host Bob Mackin. Plus, highlights of The Bureau investigative reporter Sam Cooper’s testimony to a House of Commons committee studying foreign interference by China.
