When Trudeau first answered questions about the bombshell Globe & Mail investigation into corruption at SNC-Lavalin, he looked nervous and irritated when being asked to address the issue of whether former Justice Minister Jody Willson-Raybould was pressured to drop criminal charges against the company.
Then, while campaigning in British Columbia for the Burnaby-South by-election, Trudeau talked about the scandal with a grin, and a sparkle in his eyes. He looked like a winner and said he still had "full confidence" in Wilson-Raybould, adding that the fact she was still in cabinet should speak for itself.
Then she quit, signing her resignation letter "Puglaas," her Aboriginal name, which means "honourable, and lawyered up, with a former Supreme Court judge.
No one has ever quit Trudeau’s cabinet on principle.
Meanwhile, David Lametti, the new Justice Minister, has said that he just might let SNC-Lavalin off the hook anyways.
I wonder what else he’s agreed to do to keep his job?
