The federal attorney-general is allowed to issue a directive to the director of public prosecutions regarding a specific case. The government official noted that 2015 Open and Accountable guidelines set for the government say “it is appropriate for the attorney-general to consult with cabinet colleagues before exercising his or her powers … in order to fully assess the public policy considerations relevant to specific prosecutorial decisions.”
 


The executive branch cannot pressure the judiciary to drop an investigation or issue a lenient decision.

Do you really want corporations to be exempt from bribery laws?

Well they can convict the PM of ethics breeches...and nothing happens...

How will PM move forward with SNC-Lavalin case?

Published Monday, February 11, 2019 1:27PM EST

OTTAWA – The Conflict of Interest and Ethics Commissioner is launching an investigation into whether Prime Minister Justin Trudeau or anyone in his office tried to have former justice minister Jody Wilson-Raybould abandon the prosecution of a case against SNC-Lavalin, according to the NDP.

It was the New Democrats who requested the investigation. In a statement, the party says commissioner Mario Dion has agreed that there are sufficient grounds to begin an investigation.

The Globe and Mail reported last week that the Prime Minister's Office tried to get Wilson-Raybould -- who was also the federal attorney general at the time -- to ask prosecutors to make a deal in the corruption and fraud case against the Quebec-based engineering and construction company.

According to the Globe, Wilson-Raybould was unwilling to play along and did not follow through despite the high-level pressure. CTV News has not independently verified the story.

Trudeau has flatly denied the allegations and current Justice Minister David Lametti said he has yet to see any evidence to merit a committee investigation into the matter, something the opposition parties are also calling for.

"We urge Mr. Trudeau’s team to stop trying to discredit Ms. Wilson-Raybould and to commit to fully cooperate with the Ethic Commissioner’s investigation," said NDP MP Nathan Cullen in the statement announcing the investigation was going ahead.

"The Liberal government should also support the work of the Justice Committee… Canadians deserve answer. This scandal goes to the heart of our democracy and the fairness of our legal system," Cullen said.

I’d think much worse was done than this. He is entitled to shuffle people all he wants. 

It is greasy, but not as greasy as all politicians already are and just waiting to get caught for 

This. Doesn't sound like some political decimation.

He's already had a run in with the ethics commission and it has no teeth. Trudeau is so fucking blind to the optics, it's like they've not learned from the sponsorship scandal that got us ten years of Harper... My Liberal MP is backing the calls to investigate this so he's probably going to get booted from the party soon.

There's a layer to all of this that hasn't come out publicly yet.

I have a feeling this whole ordeal might die a quiet death.

Wilson-Raybould resigns from Trudeau cabinet in wake of SNC-Lavalin claims

Jody Wilson-Raybould has submitted her resignation from the Trudeau cabinet in the midst of allegations that the Prime MInister’s Office tried to pressure the former justice minister to abandon a corruption and fraud prosecution of SNC-Lavalin, sources say.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has called an emergency cabinet committee meeting to deal with the fallout.

A statement from her was released around 11:30 a.m. ET.

A source close to the B.C. politician said this was a really awful day for the minister and for her supporters who consider her to be a person of high integrity.

Her departure comes one day after Mr. Trudeau said Ms. Wilson-Raybould’s continued membership in his cabinet as an indicator to Canadians that she is not unhappy with his government.

"Her presence in cabinet should actually speak for itself," the prime minister had said Monday.

The Globe and Mail reported last week that as attorney general, Ms. Wilson-Raybould came under pressure from the Prime Minister’s Office to override the decision of the public prosecution service shelve court proceedings against SNC-Lavalin in favour of a negotiated settlement without trial. The company faces charges of bribing Libyan officials between 2001 and 2011 in exchange for contracts.

This will be like Trudeau's "zero tolerance on misconduct toward women applies to him as well" statement. If it were a conservative PM saying either of these, CBC and other media outlets would be running it 24/7 until he resigned but just like his #metoo scandal, it will be covered for a few days and then the focus will pivot back to the latest Trump outrage or some other irrelevant story to take the heat off.
