Wilson-Raybould’s intentions might not be completely righteous. And?

Let’s assume for a moment, since many have already, that Jody Wilson-Raybould’s actions as they relate to the SNC-Lavalin saga have indeed been driven by a toxic combination of malevolence and self-importance.

Take the position that she — either spurned by the Prime Minister’s Office or motivated by her own pursuit of power and notoriety — doesn’t actually care about the independence of Canada’s judiciary or the integrity of our public prosecutions. Rather, she wants to take down the prime minister, along with those around him, so that she may pave the way for new leadership, or else perhaps just sit back and watch the fire burn.
