LAWTON: PMO accused of trying to interfere in prosecution of Liberal-connected corporation

A bombshell Globe and Mail report says key players in the Prime Minister’s Office tried to get former attorney general Jody Wilson-Raybould to interfere in the prosecution of SNC-Lavalin over bribes to Libyan officials.

A former SNC-Lavalin vice-president was charged with making over $100,000 in illegal contributions to the Liberal Party of Canada and numerous candidates. Company representatives have also met with Prime Minister’s Office officials 14 times since 2017 to lobby the government on “justice.”

True North’s Andrew Lawton has the latest.

We’re asking readers, like you, to make a contribution in support of True North’s fact-based, independent journalism.

Unlike the mainstream media, True North isn’t getting a government bailout. Instead, we depend on the generosity of Canadians like you.

How can a media outlet be trusted to remain neutral and fair if they’re beneficiaries of a government handout? We don’t think they can.

This is why independent media in Canada is more important than ever. If you’re able, please make a tax-deductible donation to True North today. Thank you so much.
