Canada’s SNC Lavalin corruption scandal—Should Prime Minister Justin Trudeau go to jail?
The issue now is whether Trudeau did in fact pressure Wilson-Raybould directly or indirectly, despite his unconvincing denials. If he did, he would have committed several serious criminal offences, including obstruction of justice. Wilson-Raybould's demotion certainly looks like punishment for not acceding to pressure. It doesn't pass the smell test either that the newly appointed Justice Minister David Lametti happens to be the Member of Parliament for the Montreal constituency where SNC's Lavalin's head office is located.
