pfft. They wouldn't they have; they have nothing to gain from helping a company that's made millions in donations over the past few years. SNC would never have the gall to call in a favour from the Government... let alone the PMO.

Its the Chinese that are leaning on the PMO to stop the investigation into SNC because they don't want the connection to Huawei to be uncovered....

Hilarious. Not too long ago I read something about SNC-Lavalin being one of, if not the most corrupt company in Canada. It's no wonder they're good buddies with the Liberals.

As for Groper denying pressuring the AG, yeah right. Just like he tried to deny saying that low income people don't pay taxes.

I wouldn’t be surprised if these allegations were true but let’s remember SNC made donations to both liberal and conservative parties, all which had to be reimbursed when the scam came to light 8 years ago. And

the executive behind the scheme at SNC was appointed by STEPHEN HARPER to the board of the Port of Montreal.

So Let’s not conflate this with some “quid-pro-quo” for a failed contribution attempt almost a decade ago before most of the current leadership was even around.

SNC Lavalin is like Boeing in the US it’s a giant government contracting corporation that throws its weight around on both parties and bureaucracy insiders. It’s also a serial offender whern it comes to sketchy/illicit government dealings at home and abroad.

Yes they did but, the only problem was that comparison is that their "donations" to the conservatives were to the now defunct Progressive Conservative Party of Canada, another party with ties to Quebec and led by yet another Quebec politician. The rest of the time the majority of their donations were to the Liberal Party of Canada and various other Liberal entities both provincial and personal.

So when you look at the list, they've been "donating" to the Liberals like Trudeau hands out tax dollars to 3rd world countries.

I can't help but wonder if the Board of Directors at SNC Lavalin includes names like Icepick, Big Tuna and Jackie the Nose?

It becomes an ethics scandal at a minimum, and possibly even a crime, if the PMO punished Wilson-Raybould with a demotion if she refused to lay off on SNC in order to install a different cabinet minister who would co-operate with the scheme. That's the Canadian version of obstruction of justice, and that's where the meat of the scandal lies and it becomes worse every day that the Liberals refuse to answer questions about it. Wilson-Raybould is hiding behind lawyer/client privilege to avoid talking but the question then becomes which one is she in this mess - the lawyer or the client?

Justin Trudeau - learned how to polarize the country from his father and apparently learned his political ethics & morals from Jean Chretien. Wonder if there'll be any chintzy & small-town-cheap autographed golf balls being handed out among the participants. :lol:

Well, if the Liberals block any investigation into this, they'll basically confirm Goober's guilt. It'll be pretty damn difficult to come away with any other conclusion.

He's way better at the whole polarizing game. He's about as sleezy as a used car salesman.

Hey now. I think sleazy used car salesmen would be insulted by that comparison.
