@JustinTrudeau did not direct the Attorney General to intervene in the #SNCLavalin case, so therefore he respected the independence of the AG which was confirmed by JWR @Puglaas in her testimony.


The #CPC passed the Director of public Prosecutions act in 2006, clearly the AG retains political discretion to override decision's by the director (DPP) on whether to prosecute.

When the Attorney General decides whether to initiate and conduct a prosecution on behalf of the federal Crown, Crown counsel must consider two issues:

Should Judy Wilson-raybould @Puglaas have continued to evaluate whether a remediation deal with #SNCLavalin was in the public interest?

Judy Wilson-Raybould (@Puglaas) the former attorney general clearly states the PM @JustinTrudeau did not contravene the criminal code.

@R_Boissonnault "It was very clear that neither the PM, nor the clerk, ever directed her (@Puglaas) to go into a remediation deal with #SNCLavalin, & its direction, Is the line that's too far Peter".

Everything else is a legitimate conversation in public policy.

@GmButts says PM told @Puglaas he was moving her to #Indigenous Services in shuffle... She said “I feel I am being shuffled out of justice for other reasons.” #Butts says she turned down the post because she spent her life opposed to the Indian Act.

#Butts says JWR prefered method of communicating important matters is in writing. "Yet, in all our texts & emails..there is not a single mention of this file, or anyone's conduct on this file until during the cabinet shuffle."

#ButtsTestimony #Geraldbutts
#Butts says he 1st learned during her testimony last week that JWR had made a final decision on directing the DPP on Sept 16 "If the AG had made a decision & communicated it to the PM & clerk..why would the AG take & solicit meetings on a closed matter?"

#Butts says Philpott told PM in a meeting ahead of the cabinet shuffle that JWR might wonder if her move were connected to the DPA issue. Butts says this was the 1st time he heard anyone suggest the shuffle was related to the #SNCLavalin file

#Wernick says the following facts are not contested: “@Puglaas was always the decision maker. She was assured multiple times that she was the final decision maker…entering into a DPA would have been entirely lawful.”


Nathalie Drouin says justice department developed a report of 'legal advice' on #SNCLavalin, but did not share it with the Privy Council Office. "I was instructed not to send it."


Judy Wilson-Raybould did not see eye to eye on the the #Indigenous framework set forth by @Carolyn_Bennett.
