More details have come to light of the scheme that allowed SNC-Lavalin to illegally pump nearly $110,000 into the Liberal party’s coffers from 2004 to 2009. Despite the Liberals trying to conceal the identities of the donors, we now know who’s on the list. Of the 18 donors, only one was charged. The company itself avoided prosecution by signing a letter saying it wouldn’t break the law again.
True North’s Andrew Lawton explains 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.
