Justin Trudeau lied again last night about the SNC-Lavalin Corruption Scandal

Trudeau continues to assert that media stories are false despite ruling that he broke the law

Last night Justin Trudeau unrepentantly lied again to Canadians about the SNC-Lavalin corruption scandal. In a debate exchange with Mr. Scheer, Justin Trudeau shockingly asserted that a Globe and Mail story, which first detailed how Justin Trudeau attempted to interfere in an ongoing corruptions and fraud court case, was false.

How do Canadians know Justin Trudeau lied last night? Check the record:

  • Trudeau was investigated by the Ethics Commissioner who determined he broke the law over the SNC-Lavalin corruption scandal; 
  • Attorney General Jody Wilson-Raybould confirmed to a House of Commons committee that Trudeau pressured her to interfere in the SNC-Lavalin court case;
  • Trudeau’s two most senior staff resigned in disgrace and former cabinet minister Jane Philpot resigned in protest over Trudeau’s unethical behavior; and
  • The RCMP were blocked from investigating Justin Trudeau’s office.

Despite all this, Justin Trudeau still says the Globe and Mail story is false.

Why? Because Justin Trudeau is not as advertised. He is a fraud and he does not deserve to govern this country.

To ensure this never happens again, a Conservative government will launch a judicial inquiry into the SNC-Lavalin corruption scandal and introduce the No More Cover Ups Act to allow the RCMP to access information protected by cabinet confidence.
