Liberal MPs shut down SNC committee before vote on recalling Wilson-Raybould

The Liberal-dominated justice committee convened an emergency meeting on Wednesday to determine if they should hear further testimony from Jody Wilson-Raybould over allegations that senior officials tried to interfere with the prosecution of an engineering firm accused of bribery.

Colleague Tracey Ramsay said she was "shocked at the behaviour" of Liberal members.

He said she can provide the committee with a written statement and noted she's testified before the committee for almost four hours already. She testified the first time on February 27, in a four-hour session where she laid out her case that the Prime Minister's Office had put sustained pressure on her over four months last autumn to change her mind on diverting a criminal prosecution of SNC-Lavalin.

"He sent in his majority to shut down that discussion without a debate and ensure that Canadians will never know the truth", Conservative MP Pierre Poilievre said. March 19 also happens to be budget day.

Philpott's resignation follows in suit with the principled approach of stepping down from her position, much in the same vein as why Wilson-Raybould left caucus. He even suggested they might consider inviting the former justice minister to appear as a witness before other committees.

"If the Liberals are going to put forward arguments against hearing from Ms. Wilson-Raybould to be able to come to committee to be able to tell her full version of events", Cooper said, "it is imperative that they do so in public, in front of the cameras where there is a transcript and a recorded vote so that Canadians can see for themselves just what the Liberals are trying to do".

In the end, Canadians still need to know why the former attorney general was sacked and what happened in the time between then and her resignation. That prompted opposition members to shout angry accusations about a "cover-up" and call the actions of Liberal committee members "disgusting" and "despicable". "We'll have more news on that in the days ahead", Poilievre said.

Trudeau also needs to extend the confidentiality waiver he issued to allow Wilson-Raybould to talk about matters that normally would be protected by cabinet confidences or solicitor-client privilege, Ramsey added. The Organisation of Economic Cooperation and Development has also made a rare statement saying they are "watching" the situation which involves an global incident of bribery and fraud by the Canadian-based multinational SNC Lavalin.

And one more kicker: the next meeting will be held behind closed doors, no cameras allowed, leaving Canadians wondering if they will ever know what happened. "What are they hiding and why won't they let her speak?"
