Scheer responds to ethics commissioner's ruling on SNC-Lavalin affair

Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer says there’s enough evidence of misconduct by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in the SNC-Lavalin affair to warrant an investigation by the RCMP. Scheer was responding to a report by ethics commissioner Mario Dion, who says Trudeau violated the Conflict of Interest Act by improperly pressuring former attorney general Jody Wilson-Raybould to halt the criminal prosecution of the Montreal engineering giant.
