#LavScam latest: you couldn’t make this stuff up if you tried


  1. Matt says:


    Yeas because it’s not like JWR could have been left in Justice and Trudeau could have picked one of the other, what, 15o+ Liberal MP’s who didn’t have a cabinet post to fill Veterans Affairs.

    Memo to Trudeau: When you find yourself in a hole, stop digging.

  2. Derek Pearce says:

    This is laughably amateur. Why not put Lametti in Veteran’s Affairs? Why not put Regan in Treasury Board? These are the next OBVIOUS questions coming.

    The PMO be smart enough to know that all they’re going to do is play catch-up catch-up catch-up and never get ahead of this story unless the truth is told. Although I guess it’s too late to rip the bandaid off, they’re going to sink this ship no matter what now.

  3. Vancouverois says:

    Well, so much for lack of French being an issue.

    I understand he now claims that she brought up the issue back in September because she was being pressured by the premiers of Quebec (first Couillard, then Legault). But I also hear that there is no record of her having met with either of them… is that true?

  4. Sam White says:

    This is becoming more an more like Monty Python TV episode.

    WHY is he doing this? Is it because some liberal insiders are screaming for Butts head on a spike and there is NO WAY he can or will do that, so he’s just making shit up on the fly?

    The mind reels..

  5. Vancouverois says:

    …and now there’s a #BlameBrison hashtag.

  6. Sammy says:

    Lots of informed opinion Brison quit to try to avoid becoming further embroiled in the Norman case, aka that other Liberal justice influencing scandal. If so, serves them all right.

  7. 4 x 4 Time says:

    Just curious, does anybody know if there are any Cabinet Ministers who claim not to speak English?

  8. The real Sean says:

    Naturally, Scott Brison is the first person who should be blamed for this foolishness.

  9. Matt says:

    Now he’s admitting JWR challenged him on SNC!!

    Don’t have a subscription to the Star, so this is all I can see:

    Trudeau admits Wilson-Raybould challenged him on SNC-Lavalin
    By TONDA MACCHARLESOttawa Bureau
    Fri., Feb. 15, 2019
    OTTAWA—Prime Minister Justin Trudeau admits his former justice minister and attorney general Jody Wilson-Raybould challenged her boss last fall to clarify if he was “directing” her to make a decision in the disputed bribery prosecution of SNC-Lavalin.

    Trudeau refused Friday to say exactly what he told his former attorney general or whether he indicated his own preference to her.
