Conservatives demand that Justin Trudeau resign amid SNC-Lavalin affair

Dear Editor,

Canadians were shocked to hear the explosive testimony of former Attorney General Jody Wilson-Raybould on the SNC-Lavalin affair. Canadians heard of the inappropriate, and potentially illegal, pressure brought on her by the highest officials of Justin Trudeau's government and Justin Trudeau himself.

Since the Globe and Mail broke the story on February 7th, this Prime Minister has not been straight forward with Canadians about his actions and those of the PMO. But this week, Canadians heard testimony from Ms. Wilson-Raybould. She stated during her testimony that she "experienced a consistent and sustained effort by many people within the government to seek to politically interfere in the exercise of prosecutorial discretion."

Following the testimony, Conservative Leader, Andrew Scheer, sent a letter to the RCMP requesting that they immediately open an investigation into this matter. We believe that Canada should be a country where we are all equal under the rule of law. This Prime Minister's actions to intervene in a matter were not appropriate. Canadians deserve better.

Karen Vecchio, MP
