Don't blame JWR for any of this. Blame SNC Lavalin for putting her in the position where she had to say something. Another company getting sweetheart deals & subsidies from the liberals, just like Bombardier.

CC trying to remain relevant by appearing on TV defending Jr and SNC-L is a huge red flag.

I don't blame JWR for SNCs lot, but I think it is naive to think the PMO wasn't going to pressure her either.  Her job is political despite her belief otherwise and I am not so sure her actions did not have a political goal as well.

Canadians are so booooooooooooooring!

“People south of the border would be astonished to think that this is the type of scandal that they have in Canada,” said Eddie Goldenberg, a former adviser to former Prime Minister Jean Chretien.

Many countries would be jealous of a scandal that went no further than a prime minster asking another minister to do something she is legally entitled to do, Goldenberg said.

“I just don’t really see it as a scandal,” he said. “There is a political correctness here. Nobody wants to go after an indigenous woman minister. It’s become politically incorrect to question the former minister.”

“It’s a pseudo-scandal. It’s crap. What the hell? You are doing business in Libya and you are not bribing?” said Robert Bothwell, a professor of Canadian history and international relations at the University of Toronto. “It does suggest to me that the director of public prosecutions … is also nuts. And so is Wilson-Raybould. These people are delusional.”

JWR scores the  high level cabinet posting and pretends nothing is political.

In stead of quietly sliding sideways  her & Jane her BFF resign  cabinet posts in spectacular fashion (btw costing these rookies hundreds of thousands in salary ) and expect to stay in caucus.

Then since we got the pretty boy and by definaition the Liberal party of Canada on the mat already Celina Caesar-Chavannes goes public that JT yelled at her  but we don't know if he made her cry

solid Liberals eh? A bunch of rookies who got too high too fast

Finally I’m glad to see some feel the same as I. This is a NON story. Business as usual. I don’t want to say much more for fear of being branded as sexist, which would also be bs.

Sorry I'm not joining in your circle jerk on crafting a narrative you have no hope of supporting.  You are projecting your beliefs through stories you read from the publishers you like.

Those who take a side on this is what's wrong with Canada.  Step fucking back and ask yourself the simple questions I laid out for you already:

1) Did SNC break the law?  Yes/No/Undecided Yet

2) Did SNC, a large Liberal and to a smaller extent PC donor lobby government to put a provision in a massive omnibus bill to cover their illegalities?

3) Is the Liberal party criminal stupid and didn't realize the above happened?

4) Why is it illegal for our corporations not to give hundreds of millions of dollars to despots?

5) How many jobs would we lose?

6) What is the danger to allowing large political donors to be able to craft their own laws?

Whatever, let me reply for you:   LIBERALS RULE!!!
