SCHEER CALLS ON RCMP TO INVESTIGATE TRUDEAU AND SNC-LAVALIN AFFAIR



February 28, 2019
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Ottawa, ON– The Honourable Andrew Scheer, Leader of Canada’s Conservatives and the Official Opposition, this morning sent a letter to RCMP Commissioner Brenda Lucki calling for an investigation into Justin Trudeau’s actions in relation to the SNC-Lavalin Affair.
The following is an excerpt of the letter:
It is contrary to the Criminal Code to engage in any conduct with the intent to provoke fear in the Attorney General. It is further contrary to the Criminal Code to attempt to obstruct or defeat the course of justice.
According to the facts as have been revealed in media reports, Parliamentary testimony from Clerk of the Privy Council Michael Wernick, and most significantly the recent comments of the former Attorney General, Canadians rightly ought to be concerned that criminal law has been violated.
Scheer said a criminal investigation is necessary for Canadians to understand the full scale of Justin Trudeau’s actions.
“Canadians cannot have a Prime Minister who is willing to commit a crime to protect his political interests,” Scheer said. “We need the police to investigate these serious allegations and Justin Trudeau should immediately resign and allow this investigation to take place.”
