They were already rejected by the Independent Public Prosecutor and the Courts, but with Trudeau booting Wilson-Raybould the company clearly sees now as the time to strike.
Following Justin Trudeau’s expulsion of Jody Wilson-Raybould and Jane Philpott from the Liberal Caucus, SNC-Lavalin is making another bid for a deferred prosecution agreement.
SNC-Lavalin has clearly gotten the message from Trudeau: Now is the time to try again for a DPA.
After all, while Trudeau claims that the DPA decision was ‘Jody Wilson-Raybould’s’ to make, he never respected her decision, removed her from the job, appointed someone who says a DPA is now a possibility again, and then kicked Wilson-Raybould out of the Liberal Caucus.
So, it’s not a big shock that SNC-Lavalin, despite having been rejected by both the Independent Public Prosecutor and the Courts, is making a bid to appeal their previous court defeat.
They’ve seen that Trudeau is willing to corrupt the system in their favour, and they think their chances of getting a DPA are now much higher.
What a disgrace.
