Trudeau Ethics Violation Act in SNC-Lavalin Case, Establishes Watchman



OTTAWA – The Federal Ethics Commissioner in Canada said Wednesday that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau violated an ethics law when he and his staff pressed a former attorney general to settle a corruption case against a major engineering company.

In the long-awaited Report, Commissioner Mario Dion stated that Mr Trudeau had used his office "to circumvent, undermine and ultimately try to discredit" former Attorney General and former Justice Minister Jodie Wilson-Reidson , breaking the longstanding tradition of separating the justice system from political interference.

The report comes just weeks before the campaign officially launches for Canada's national elections in October, when Mr Trudeau will file his case for another term.

Political turmoil has gripped Mr Trudeau as reports surfaced. in February, Mrs. Wilson-Reybold believed that the Prime Minister and his staff had wrongly pressured her to resolve a bribery case against a SNC-Lavalin engineering company that avoided a criminal conviction.

This is an evolving story and will be updated.
