What a shock…
In a ‘shocking’ revelation that’s really no surprise at all, it turns out that the ‘consultations’ that led to the legislation that could give SNC-Lavalin a sweetheart deal to get out of a potential corruption conviction were ordered by the Trudeau PMO.
Here’s what the CP reported:
“The internal briefing note, released under the Access to Information Act, says the PMO directed Public Service and Procurement Canada to consult the public in 2017 on both the overall integrity regime and the possibility of introducing formal alternatives to prosecuting financial crimes.
Early last year, following the consultation, the government passed legislation to create what is known as a remediation agreement — a means of having a corporation accused of wrongdoing make amends without facing the potentially devastating consequences of a criminal conviction.
As a result of a second thread of the consultation, the government is also proposing to soften the penalty scheme for companies involved in wrongdoing by changing the process for determining how long an offending firm should be barred from getting federal contracts.”
What a ‘coincidence’!
It just randomly happened that ‘consultations’ led to exactly what the corporate elites would have wanted?
How do these random things keep happening with Trudeau in power?
What could be the reason?
Good thing we’ve got the most ‘open and transparent’ government so we can get to the bottom of it!
After all, it’s not like Justin Trudeau would silence a former Attorney General and impose pressure on the independence of the judiciary, right?
