‘Situations were experienced differently – and I regret that.’ Trudeau offers no apology as he acknowledges role in #SNCLavalin affair #Lavscam

Prime Minster Justin Trudeau says he didn’t realize there was an “erosion of trust” between his office and former attorney-general Jody Wilson-Raybould over the fall of 2018 and acknowledged he should have realized this was taking place.

The Prime Minister used an early morning press conference in Ottawa to speak at length about the political crisis that has engulfed his government over the past month and triggered the resignation of one of his most senior aides and two cabinet ministers including Ms. Wilson-Raybould.

He offered no apologies for what has taken place, acknowledged no wrongdoing in what has unfolded since The Globe and Mail reported on Feb. 7 that officials in the Prime Minister’s Office put pressure on Ms. Wilson-Raybould to reach a negotiated settlement with SNC-Lavalin.
