Opposition pushes to bring Wilson-Raybould back before committee digging into SNC-Lavalin scandal

Opposition MPs will make another bid to bring Jody Wilson-Raybould back to testify before the Commons justice committee today — and they warn that Canadians will see any attempt by the Liberals to block them as evidence of a “coverup.”

The committee probing the SNC-Lavalin affair is holding an emergency session today on whether the former justice minister and attorney general should be recalled. The meeting was requested by Conservative and NDP members, even though the Liberals already have defeated a motion to invite Wilson-Raybould to return.

The meeting begins at 1 p.m. ET and CBCNews.ca will carry it live.

The Liberals are afraid, very afraid.
