LILLEY: Trudeau government’s history of ethics problems

Ethically challenged, that’s an understatement for the Trudeau government.

The PM’s office is now under investigation by Ethics Commissioner Mario Dion to see if he broke any laws or regulations in pressuring then- attorney general Jody Wilson-Raybould to go easy on a Liberal-friendly firm from Quebec, SNC-Lavalin.

It isn’t unfamiliar territory for Trudeau; he is after all, the first prime minister to be found in violation of Canada’s ethics laws for MPs over his trip to the private island of the Aga Khan.

So in this current situation they have the ethics commissioner investigating, they have New Brunswick Liberal MP Wayne Long calling for an investigation into the SNC affair and Ontario Liberal MP Celina Caesar-Chavannes pushing back against the PMO’s smearing of Wilson-Raybould.
