Scheer Promises Inquiry Into Trudeau’s SNC-Lavalin Scandal, Will Introduce ‘No More Cover Ups Act’

Would also give RCMP more power to look into cabinet confidences.

Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer is promising an inquiry into Justin Trudeau’s SNC-Lavalin Scandal.

Scheer says that if he forms government, he will launch an official judicial inquiry into the scandal.

And, in a move designed to stop future Prime Minister’s from doing what Justin Trudeau has – hide information by claiming ‘cabinet confidences,’ Scheer will introduce a No More Cover Ups Act.

Here’s what the Conservatives said in a release:

“A new Conservative government will also introduce the No More Cover Ups Act to allow the RCMP to access information protected by cabinet confidence by making an application to the Supreme Court of Canada. This will prevent corrupt politicians from hiding behind cabinet confidence to escape police investigation.

As confirmed by hours of Parliamentary testimony, taped conversations, and an Ethics Commissioner’s guilty verdict, Trudeau politically interfered in SNC-Lavalin’s criminal prosecution by trying to “circumvent, undermine, and ultimately attempt to discredit” former Attorney General Jody Wilson-Raybould.”

“Justin Trudeau has covered up his role in the SNC-Lavalin corruption scandal every step of the way,” Scheer said. “He blocked three Parliamentary investigations, refused to co-operate with the Ethics Commissioner, and is currently blocking the RCMP from obtaining key evidence. As Prime Minister, I will call a judicial inquiry so Canadians can finally get the answers they deserve.”

“No longer will a corrupt Prime Minister be able to be the gatekeeper of his own misconduct,” said Scheer. “These measures will safeguard our democracy against the whims of sleazy and unscrupulous politicians. Justin Trudeau has so far avoided consequence for the SNC-Lavalin corruption scandal, but the Canadian people will deliver their verdict on October 21.”

Well done Scheer this act should have been enacted years ago to protect Canadian residents from corrupt politicians like Trudeau and the Liberals. Any and all politicians and persons involved in these corrupt actions should be held responsible and face scrutiny and consequences including removal from politics in Canada for life. We Canadians deserve to be informed and mainstream media outlets should be held accountable as well. Canadians deserve better than what we have had in the last 4 years. Investigations have to be done fairly with no witch hunts just fair and honest investigating.

Trudeau’s lackies msm, collect Scheer and Singh campaign plans send it via email or phone then trudeau’s henchmen get together to dissect the plans to make it more Trudeau lib own plan:
Example: Scheer offers $1
Trudeau offers $1.20 however that extra 20c will be taxed

Major Tom

How about stripping the positions of Deputy Minister from the RCMP Commissioner’s and Chief of Defence Staff’s mantle while you’re at it? These positions should not be political as they are operational!
How is it that the head of the Canada Border Services Agency is a President and not a Commissioner? What??
Perhaps if political accountability is removed from these uniformed positions….truth and justice will return…….

This is a very much needed piece of legislation. That would remove the very piece of legislation his father Pierre Trudeau introduced and made law back in 1968,all to cover up his shady dealings. Like father like son, both corrupt and elite and are destroyers of everything Canada and Canadians stand for. And while there is talk of judicial investigations, there should be another judicial investigation of Trudeau and his secret behind closed doors dealing with Chinese billionaires; that just happened to benefit from a unexplainable dropping of duties (175 million dollars) and a awarding of 42 billion dollar gas… Read more »

This is a brave bold act, from Andrew Scheer announcing this right in Trudeaus own riding, Go Andrew Scheer we need transparency and protection from these lefties.

alan skelhorne

if mr. scheer gets in, I would have the rcmp investigated, really, these people used to be so respected, now, not so much. would I trust one of them, never.

Sue

Have I mentioned how much I want Andrew to be our Prime Minister?

Scheer MUST get more aggressive. Not introduce some Act, but declare that there will be no interference into police investigations into suspected criminal activities from the PMO. No Prime Minister can be allowed to place himself above the law and ban or block investigations into themselves as Trudeau has. Force Trudeau to respond.
