ANDREW SCHEER: TRUDEAU MUST RECALL THE HOUSE OF COMMONS



March 1, 2019
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Ottawa, ON– The Honourable Andrew Scheer, Leader of Canada’s Conservatives and the Official Opposition, today called on Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to recall the House of Commons next week so that Members of Parliament can continue to seek accountability on the ongoing SNC-Lavalin Affair.
In a letter sent to Trudeau this afternoon, Scheer called on him to recall the House of Commons next week to ensure that Canadians can be provided with full accountability of the recent events.
These allegations, credibly and compellingly supported by notes and text messages presented at the Standing Committee on Justice and Human Rights, have caused Canadians to lose a great deal of faith in key institution of our democracy and in Trudeau’s moral authority to continue as Prime Minister.
“Given the severity and credibility of the allegations against Justin Trudeau, and the cloud of scandal they have cast over his government, Trudeau must recall the House of Commons to sit next week so Members of Parliament can continue to hold him to account,” Scheer said.
Further, the letter reminds the Prime Minister that he must provide Canadians with evidence and accounts of his dealing with Ms. Wilson-Raybould during the period she described – and in the time during and following her resignation from cabinet. The Prime Minister must also waive privilege and cabinet confidentiality on his conversations with her removal as Attorney General and on the discussions with her as Veterans Affairs Minister.
“Justin Trudeau owes Canadians nothing less than full transparency on this matter,” Scheer said. “Trudeau must recall the House of Commons so Canadians can finally get to the bottom of this affair.”
