"Prime Minister Justin Trudeau continues to affirm that he was trying to protect
Canadian jobs when he and his staff spoke with former attorney general Jody
Wilson-Raybould about a Deferred Prosecution Agreement (DPA) with SNC-Lavalin.

Trudeau said this in the same week that the engineering firm's CEO has insisted
he never brought up potential job losses with the prime minister."
https://globalnews.ca/news/5087912/trudeau-snc-lavalin-ceo-jobs/

Yet the media have reported repeatedly that federal law does not allow the
government to consider job losses when looking at a DPA! Is Justin that stupid,
or does he just lie compulsively?

Yep. He just keeps digging that hole deeper and deeper. We are to
believe that of course he would be concerned about a matter than
involved the loss of a lot of jobs. That leaves me wondering by he had
originally denied having met withe JWR about the issue and why he said
that he never talked about that.

They say that "ignorance of the law is no excuse" - but JT must be fully aware
of the law by now. He could have said he didn't know, and apologized, but he
keeps doubling down. The arrogant SOB ought to be charged with obstruction of
justice.

A compliance agreement signed by SNC Lavalin in 2016 refers to a system that involved "certain former senior executives" of the company. Employees were encouraged to donate to federal political parties, then were reimbursed by the company through "false refunds for personal expenses or payment of fictitious bonuses."

Under federal election financing laws, companies are not allowed to contribute to parties or candidates. The scheme allowed SNC Lavalin to circumvent the law by making political donations indirectly through its employees.

four resignations because it was about jobs and a matter of different opinion. He makes Trump look like a boy scout.
