Like Thieves In The Night

Quid pro quos, greasy influence over civil servants, too much power in the PMO: It all seems awfully familiar, doesn’t it?
Quid pro quos, greasy influence over civil servants, too much power in the PMO: It all seems awfully familiar, doesn’t it?

And the world moves on.

Aided and abetted by newer news (the terrible crash of the Ethiopian jet), the fact that the collective attention span is that of an agitated toddler and the Liberal majority on the Commons justice committee, it may well be that LavScan or LavScam, as the SNC-Lavalin imbroglio has come to be called — You see? We can’t even settle on a proper handle — will soon disappear entirely from the Canadian consciousness.

On Wednesday, Liberal MP Francis Drouin took non-Liberal members of the committee by surprise — the opposition had called the emergency session to discuss getting deposed attorney-general Jody Wilson-Raybould back as a witness and MPs had just started making arguments — when he abruptly moved to adjourn the meeting and the sheep duly followed.

To opposition shouts of “This is disgusting!” and “Coverup!”, the Liberal members bravely slipped out back doors.

PM Justin Trudeau himself was either in Florida, or heading back to Florida, or heading home again from Florida: For a while there, he was in and out like a sailor on shore leave. He appears to treat that state like he treats question period: It’s there for his convenience.

The committee’s next meeting, slated for next Tuesday, is expected to be held behind closed doors, and it certainly appears the majority will again reject the need to hear again from the former AG.

Re: my foregoing add ” at least get it to the “discovery stage” with the attendant publicity.

Is there any way a civil action could be commenced in order to get Wilson-Raybould under oath
and out from under the heel of that sneaky ( to put it politely) Trudeau ?? Admittedly there would be considerably legal expenses involved but from a lot of the public discourse I have heard it might be possible to raise some funding from the general public and hopefully some lawyer(s) would be prepared to offer their services at a discounted rate.

Just a wonderin’

Is there any way this matter can be carried forward without the Liberal party’s participation or
does it just fade away with no consequences ??
