Trudeau broke law in SNC-Lavalin scandal, refuses to apologize
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau addressed the media after the bombshell report dropped hours earlier by the third party Ethics Commissioner Mario Dion, which confirmed what many Canadians already believed; that Justin Trudeau had inappropriately pressured then-Attorney General Jody Wilson-Raybould in what would soon be known as the SNC-Lavalin Scandal.
Trudeau addressed the media at Niagara-on-the-lake, Ontario, in a much-anticipated response. Media pundits speculated whether the prime minister would apologize, with many iterating that this would be the first time Trudeau would have to face the verified fact that Trudeau acted inappropriately.
“We are going to, not just bring back our MPs, but bring back more MPs to Ottawa,” he told a crowd of supporters in Calgary on Saturday.
The Liberals only have three seats in the province right now, two in Edmonton and one in Calgary. Of the 34 total seats in the province, the Conservatives hold 29.
Seats the Tories occupy are often secured by a wide margin. For example, in the 2015 election Kevin Sorenson, running in Alberta’s Battle River–Crowfoot, had the second-highest share of the popular vote. He also received more votes than any other candidate across Canada.
The prime minister may predict big things for the province, but the current poll numbers don’t seem to support his theory.
Will the Liberals even win a seat in Alberta this time?
In today’s Big Story podcast, Alberta’s disdain for Trudeaus runs pretty deep. In part two of our Lay of the Land series, we visit the Tory stronghold and examine the electoral landscape. The province wasn’t a total loss for Trudeau and his Liberals in 2015, but they could easily be completely shut out here this fall.
What’s at the root of Alberta’s anger at the federal government? How much of that is their fault? And if Andrew Scheer can’t knock off a few Liberals in the suburbs this time, what does that say about the national vote?
