Liberals want secret investigation into SNC-Lavalin that excludes Wilson-Raybould and PMO

During an ongoing Standing Committee on Justice and Human Rights meeting on political interference in the SNC-Lavalin affair, the Liberals put forward a witness list that excluded Jody Wilson-Raybould and several members of the Prime Minister’s Office implicated in the scandal.

Despite the fact that the committee meeting was called for by the Conservative opposition, the Liberals guided the agenda with their own motion to hold interviews with key witnesses “in camera”, or behind closed doors.

“It means in secret, no media, no transcripts, no public information, nothing. Total silence,” said Conservative MP Pierre Poilievre.
