They’re mentioned in the title, but that’s about it. I would agree the article is misleadingly titled.

Damning report that Trudeau violated ethics act in SNC-Lavalin affair

Quote:
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says he accepts and takes full responsibility after Ethics Commissioner Mario Dion found he violated the Conflict of Interest Act by trying to influence then-justice minister Jody Wilson-Raybould to overrule a decision to not grant a deferred prosecution agreement to Quebec-based engineering firm SNC-Lavalin.

In his report released Wednesday, Dion wrote, "The evidence showed there were many ways in which Mr. Trudeau, either directly or through the actions of those under his direction, sought to influence the Attorney General."

"The Prime Minister, directly and through his senior officials, used various means to exert influence over Ms. Wilson‑Raybould. The authority of the Prime Minister and his office was used to circumvent, undermine and ultimately attempt to discredit the decision of the Director of Public Prosecutions as well as the authority of Ms. Wilson‑Raybould as the Crown's chief law officer," Dion said.

Stunning. Not that The Dope is a lying, manipulative POS, but that MotherCorpse actually reported on this...

Trudeau sought to influence Wilson-Raybould, violated ethics rules: ethics commissioner

Quote:
Ethics Commissioner Mario Dion has found Prime Minister Justin Trudeau broke the federal Conflict of Interest Act in relation to the SNC-Lavalin scandal, by seeking to influence Jody Wilson-Raybould in "many ways."

Dion found that after taking months to review "troubling" evidence and relevant legal and constitutional principles, Trudeau contravened section nine of the Act, which states that public office holders are prohibited from using their position to seek to influence a decision that furthers the interest of a private third party.

His findings, released in a scathing report less than 70 days before the federal election, have renewed discussions about the scandal that dogged the Liberals for months earlier this years and led to a decline in the polls.

Good read that sadly does not lend itself to a brief quote.

The mask slipped Wednesday, with the release of a report by Ethics Commissioner Mario Dion that found him in contravention of the Conflict of Interest Act for the second time — just two years after he had his knuckles wrapped for taking a Christmas vacation on an island in the Bahamas owned by the Aga Khan.


Much of the narrative is known but the written testimony submitted by the prime minister last month is new and it will make uncomfortable reading for Liberals, revealing as it does the disconnect between the toothy feminist, preaching positive politics, and the egotist, happy to lay down his friends for his political life.

Conflict of interest the least of concerns raised by SNC-Lavalin affair

Quote:
...The news, rather, comes in the details of how this was attempted, which make the matter even more disturbing than it first appeared.

We knew before now of the massive, all-government lobbying effort the company had mounted in support, first, of the addition of remediation as an alternative to prosecution for certain charges under the Criminal Code, and second, of its application in SNC-Lavalin’s case. We did not know quite how eager the government was to follow the company’s lead, or how closely the two conspired, even against their own attorney general.

It seems clear from the report, for example, that it was at SNC-Lavalin’s behest that the provision was inserted in the 2018 budget, after a hasty round of public consultations. At the time, it was presented as “a useful additional tool for prosecutors to use at their discretion in appropriate circumstances.” But as it emerged neither the government nor the company would accept any exercise of prosecutorial discretion but that which agreed with them.

All of this cries out for further inquiry, not least because even the ethics commissioner, despite his best efforts, found himself repeatedly stonewalled by the prime minister’s office. It took 49 days to deliver the first batch of documents he requested; 108 days to deliver the second. The prime minister and his officials suffered a number of convenient memory lapses.

From the comments:

Quote:
Is anyone making a list of the institutions the Trudeau Liberals have corrupted or have attempted to corrupt?

– The Privy Council
– Former Supreme Court justices, which then reflects badly on the Supreme Court as a whole. I also still think the TMX court loss was a stitch up.
– The Attorney General of Canada
– The Office of the Public Prosecutor
– Revenue Canada
– Infrastructure Bank
– The Canadian Forces (Norman case)

All in four short years and that’s on top of the usual cronyism and political patronage. Why would anyone think the RCMP would escape Liberal interference? I’m sure some “creative incompetence” will help Trudeau out of any legal entanglements.

Thank goodness for the independence of our media who would never sell themselves to government for a few bucks. I wonder how much longer the PMO will allow them criticize Trudeau’s SNC scandal?
Yeppers...

No government should be involved in business--that includes "green" businesses.

The arrogance of this pup.

Let's face facts, Jane...

Quote:
...there's a reason he's known as the "Kanadian Kardashian"...
OTTAWA — Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has doubled down on his refusal to apologize for his actions in the SNC-Lavalin affair, prompting former Liberal cabinet minister Jane Philpott to question whether he truly grasps the “seriousness” of his ethics violation.
It's also possible he's all out of apology juice.
Links' bold.

I Want A New Country

Quote:
BOE Report;

In 2018 alone, according to detailed information I recently requested from Statistics Canada, the value of crude oil imported into the country was nearly $20 billion. Considering that the oil business is one of the most job-rich parts of the economy, this amounts to exporting a lot of high-paying domestic jobs to foreign places.

It’s true there are some complications to the picture that are sometimes lost in the rush judgement, such as the fact even with pipelines to the Atlantic, it would not be simple to replace the lighter grades of oil coming in to Saint John, New Brunswick by tanker.

Complications aside, the inflow is an irritant to those who see made-in-Canada petroleum under sustained attack inside of Canada, including by our own politicians, while imported fuels are able to dodge nearly all of the barriers our own products face. This is what torques the irritation to rage – the fact that the vast majority of our fossil fuel imports fail to meet the same environmental, social or economic standards that beleaguered Canadian energy must.

It turns out that crude oil is not the only fossil fuel product this applies to.
Ah knows. That's probably RACIS' or somethin'...

Comments salient.

Excellent read.
