Lorne Gunter: Jody Wilson-Raybould's partisan silence on SNC Lavalin

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

On last night's episode of The Ezra Levant ShowEdmonton Sun columnist Lorne Gunter and I talked about Gerald Butts' resignation, and Jody Wilson-Raybould's continued silence on the SNC-Lavalin scandal.

Lorne and I agree that Jody Wilson-Raybould made a principled decision when she refused to forgive the corruption of SNC Lavalin, but her continued silence in the name of "attorney-client privilege" is suspicious.

Although Wilson-Raybould is no longer a cabinet minister, she's still a Liberal MP and will be running as a Liberal in the upcoming election. So she still has an interest in keeping the Trudeau government in power.

WATCH my interview with Lorne to see why he thinks there's no reason for Wilson-Raybould to remain silent.

Think about it. The first aboriginal woman prime minister of Canada. That is JWR’s goal. The vehicle to arrive at that destination is the Liberal Party. So she wants to keep sweet with the Liberals. She was not appointed as legal counsel to the government, so the question of attorney/client privilege never arose in the SNC Lavalin scandal. Bizarre that she has kept up this pretense for so long. It looks as if she is not sure how to play this card.

The liberals; Desperate: Now using words such as assassinations, racism, to throw the people and the hounds off the stench of Lavalin.

These Liberals all play fast and loose and are not to be trusted as far as could be thrown by a two year old . This is more of Jihadi Justine’s corruption .

Thank you Liza, for that link.. I’m hoping that our pro “Feminist PM” gets taken down by these incredible Women..

Thank you Andy N.. I agree. I worked on the DEW Line in the early eighties, and have always known that the US would watch out for us.. If it were not for the US, we would be speaking Russian now.. Not that I have anything against the Russians, as they want the same things we want.. I’m just getting sick and tired of what is going on in our Country.. It’s truly sad to see how Canada is becoming the laughing stock the World over.. Just because of our Liberal Politicians.. And that is why I’m leaving, and why so many have gone before me. Canadians continue to leave on a daily basis.. Canada might make a comeback, should Canadians vote correctly in our next Election, but I have some doubts… The Canada I was born in to, is in a very bad state today… Thanks, Jill..

Not really an update if you have been paying attention but it highlights the dept of the corruption.

Explosive Update: Justin Trudeau/PMO SNC-Lavalin Affair | Michelle Rempel | Candice Bergen
It is disturbing to me how many government officials are involved. It runs very deep.

Robert Sloane,
Well said.
commented 2019-02-22 10:22:36 -0500
Andy Neimers , yes and the U.S. military has prepared along our borders before to come on up and settle things before they get out of hand.
I have no problem with them invading and taking down parliament hill and charging the trudeau and his maffia!
Since canuks are too stupid and busy shopping/awaiting their ‘entitlements’ to stop him , the good old U.S. of A. is just a border line away! Thank GOD!

Don’t be so hasty Robert Sloane, I would suggest… Canada’s internal politics may indeed be F&*#@+, and we’ll see how things go going into the next federal election, but with the second largest land mass of any nation on earth, and forming the northern border to the United States, there is NO WAY the Americans are going to allow anarchy or a dictatorship to be formed on their Northern Border!… They will do what they have to do if rampant stupidity continues to prevail in Ottawa… By the way, that’s nothing new… The United States military has always had to be prepared to “do what they have to do” to keep North America free…

Liberals lie and scheme like their father, the Devil. They can’t be believed and trusted. That’s why we must treat everything leftists say as a lie until conclusively proven otherwise.

The Plot Thickens…. My friends, you cannot trust any of them… Not One!!!

Charred, I think you are right that SLB has a massive agenda with respect to indigenous rights. My guess is that when she was demoted, her hopes of forwarding that agenda in the near future came to a screeching halt. It could be payback time and payback can be a b*tch. Someone is leaking accurate information to the Globe and there are a limited number of suspects who know about that information. Damn, there goes my bullsh*t detector again.
commented 2019-02-21 18:34:11 -0500
Get rid of Trudeau.. He should never have been elected in the first place.. The Trudeau Family is corrupt, and always has been.. Damn it people, open your eyes… I know them, and have known many other Liberal families over my years.. Including the Regan family.. They are corrupt.. As for me? I’m off to Central or South America, or Southeast Asia soon.. Without some serious intervention, Canada is doomed…

I like Popcorn… I guess we should just sit back, and enjoy the show… I like that.. Damn, it’s nice knowing that I’ll be watching it from another Country, in retirement.. Just looking out for my fellow Canadians…
commented 2019-02-21 18:17:57 -0500
If there was no indication she was singing, I would have gone back to Quiet as a Mouse or Silence of the Lambs.
commented 2019-02-21 18:13:45 -0500
I have a Drum to bang… Shen Yun.. Oh wait, that’s not me, I’m Irish.. I just like it, and enjoy bringing a little comedy into the mix.. How about Celtic Dance Drums? Yes, that’s me… Agreed… Raybould best get her act together, and soon… This shyte has been going on for far too long… Let us hope she does the right thing…

Having worked in the government on projects where the government was being sued I can offer my oppinion. Yes indeed the Solicitor General is bound by attorney client privilage…because his/her client is the government of Canada …not the people of Canada.

The people of Canada sue the government of Canada all the time. That is why there is an outpost of the Department of Justice at every department headquarters.

Robert S. someone leaked what Sings Like a Bird said to the Liberal Cabinet to the Mop and Pail. There is some speculation it may have been SLB herself or someone close to her. Maybe she has started to sing, maybe she has only sung to Cabinet and someone else leaked it. Excuse me while I get more popcorn.
commented 2019-02-21 17:51:18 -0500
ROBERT MCCLELLAND, truth… But.. she is not “singing like a bird”… She has kept quiet.. Of course she is an Affirmative Action hire… She will come out on top of all this. And so will Trudy…
commented 2019-02-21 17:20:23 -0500
My guess is Sings Like a Bird already knows she has no future in the Liberal party, she knew that when she was demoted for forgetting she was just a race/gender hire for cabinet photo-ops. This may be a classic case of if she’s going down, he’s going down. Just sayin’.

What we are seeing here, is children playing in a Sandbox. But on a National scale.. They are messing with the lives and futures of millions of Canadians.. BUT, they don’t care…. And think about how the rest of the World views us… They’re outside, looking in. And, you can bet they’re not pleased with what they are seeing… Fecking Idiots that voted this child into power….
commented 2019-02-21 16:43:54 -0500
No, I believe that Trudeau is not keeping quiet, because he truly believes that he cannot be touched… It’s a “Trudeau” thing… Untouchable, and the way he was raised… I bet that he is pulling in all “favors” from his powerful/political friends, in order to protect himself (and at the same time) destroy Raybould… She is keeping quiet because she is afraid to destroy her opportunities with the Liberal Party.. She’s no different from the rest…
commented 2019-02-21 16:26:42 -0500
The longer she keeps her powder dry, the more Little Potato keeps shooting himself in the foot.
Surely there must be somebody advising Trudeau to shut up but if so he is obviously rejecting that advice.
It’s his funeral.
commented 2019-02-21 16:25:33 -0500
CHARRED REAMINS, I agree with your comment on the Nova Scotia “incident”. If that had been a White family (that had lived in NS for Generations) Trudeau would not have said a word..
commented 2019-02-21 16:21:16 -0500
Butts’s Head? That’s funny.. SOB (Standard Operational Bullshyte) from the Liberal/Trudeau Party… AND, once again Canadians will believe the “spin”. Particularly the dumbed down “Educated” young ones… No wonder Canada is becoming the laughing stock of the World… Who wants to bet that Trudy will come out on top of all this?

They don’t call him the Boy Blunder for nuttin’.
