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.

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…

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.

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..

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?

Ya… junior.. all about junior… Is there any levels of shame to suck a vote that this guy won’t do up to and including the false sense of sympathy for the families in Nova Scotia… I know he doesn’t feel a damn for them genuinely because he doesn’t feel for the people he is starving to death as well as lives in the west that he is ruining on purpose, but it’s a great photo op and he knows it.!! It’s what he does best… Now my feelings go out to these people who lost their future, their absolute future in that fire but it sickens me that they may think that junior is not acting out but responding to them as their prime minister in their time of need.

Robert… I don’t think anyone is quite aware of what that file means and how important it is to her so she can get started on bringing apartheid to Canada.. that will be the result of parliamentary advantage to the so-called indigenous people who were living in caves using stone age tools until we got here.!! The long-term ramifications suggest historically that there will be blood and that is the result of giving parliamentary advantage to those who will not use it to keep up or learn, but merely to bring violence for the sake of violence.

Robert M said.. “I think she initially ran as a Liberal because it was the most realistic path to power, now that ain’t going to happen.“
That is a common tactic to get one’s face recognized by the public… Pierre Elliott Trudeau did the same thing after years of running as a communist NDP while disallowed entry into the USA… He couldn’t get elected with the NDP communist principles he was voicing so he decided to become a liberal and he said something about it being a means to an end and you can find his quote on that.! Lester B Pearson was a fairly honest but stupid and easily duped man and fell for the rhetoric of this socialist and the rest is as we say “history“

Ron Voss… She is going to speak and this will all be just a great misunderstanding now that she’s in possession of her file again.

She got what she wanted and she went from going to “sing like a bird” to

“quiet like a mouse” if she believes giving complete authority to natives over this land will benefit her people down the road she is blinded by her own ideological values as opposed to Common sense, foresight and vision. Unfortunately the native people that refuse to help themselves like the ones her dad talks about will be the first to suffer.. they have been groomed quite nicely to become professional complainers who have generationally taught their children to be the same instead of self-sufficient and hard-working to raise capital for their communities through conventional means like every other self-sufficient person does and drill some wells or things like that. People Forget how to do things for them selves when they’ve never have to anything and expecting it to be done for them while they wait in anticipation for their demands to be met.!! You don’t have to believe me you only have to remember this conversation.
A “Post Pationalistic Canada” is their (liberal) dream or did anybody forget that.?!

Wilson-Raybould’s lawyer:

What are the chances he will allow her to speak and thereby blow up the Liberal Party? She can always give the excuse that she is awaiting advice from her lawyer.
