Why does Trudeau desperately want to save SNC-Lavalin?

It started as a small company in 1911 and has grown to be one of the pillars of Quebec’s and indeed Canada’s corporate establishment.

If Canadians weren’t aware of the company a week ago they most certainly are now.

Because… money, kleptocracy, crony capitalism, any and all of those will fit.
