EDITORIAL: Philpott says Trudeau’s involved in a cover-up | Toronto Sun
In an astounding interview with Maclean’s Thursday, Jane Philpott, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s former treasury board president and star political candidate, accused Trudeau of a continuing cover-up in the Lavscam scandal.
“There’s much more to the story that should be told,” Philpott said. “I resigned because I could not maintain solidarity with cabinet on the specific issue of the management of the SNC-Lavalin issue.
“I felt that there was evidence of an attempt to politically interfere with the justice system in its work on the criminal trial that has been described by some as the most important and serious prosecution of corporate corruption in modern Canadian history.”
