Marathon Commons vote ends, but Philpott interview raises new questions about SNC-Lavalin affair

The Conservatives’ marathon vote protest in the Commons that ended in the wee hours this morning got an added boost from a Maclean’s magazine interview with Jane Philpott, who said there’s “much more to the story” of the SNC-Lavalin controversy.

The Conservative Opposition triggered the voting marathon in Ottawa after the Liberal-dominated justice committee shut down further investigation into the SNC-Lavalin affair. For more than 30 hours, the House of Commons was engaged in round-the-clock voting that kept MPs close to their seats.

More… It’s time to tell the rest of the SNC-Lavalin story

Jane Philpott has been quietly getting out the word in recent days that she will be doing interviews within the coming weeks.

It’s a good idea, because the former minister has only hinted in her newest interview with Maclean’s magazine about what led her to quit Justin Trudeau’s cabinet at the beginning of March.
