Let Jody Wilson-Raybould Speak
Recently, The Globe and Mail published an article accusing Justin Trudeau and his PMO of pressuring former Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould (JWR) into directing federal prosecutors to agree to SNC-Lavalin's request for a deferred prosecution.
Predictably, Justin Trudeau rehearsed a legally vetted response in which he repeated, over and over, regardless of the question "at no time did he, or any of his staff direct JWR to take a decision."
Except that the allegation had nothing to do with directing, but rather pressuring.
The stonewalling went on for days until a few days ago when Trudeau spoke for JWR and said he spoke to her a few times over the weekend and that she agreed with his position that he did nothing wrong.
Then he said that she still had his full confidence and the fact that she remained in his cabinet spoke volumes.
The very next day she quit! And retained a top-gun lawyer. Why?
We need to get to the bottom of this and find out who knew what, and determine if there were any instances of political interference or obstruction of justice.
Our Conservative caucus will be pressing the Justice Committee into adopting a full parliamentary investigation requiring senior officials to testify under oath so that we can find out what actually happened.
But we need your help!
Please sign my petition demanding that JWR be permitted to speak for herself.
It is vital that we hear her side of the story, and we have to stop Trudeau's efforts to silence her voice!
If you believe that Canada should be governed by the rule of law, instead of the laws of rulers, please sign my petition.
