Trudeau threatens Scheer with lawsuit over SNC-Lavalin comments

PM's lawyer sent letter to Opposition leader about remarks made concerning the SNC-Lavalin matter

Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer has received a lawsuit threat from the prime minister regarding comments he made about the SNC-Lavalin affair.
Scheer says he received a letter from Justin Trudeau's lawyer on March 31.
The letter from Trudeau's lawyer Julian Porter took issue with what it terms "highly defamatory" comments in a statement made by Scheer on March 29 in response to new documents tabled in the justice committee from former attorney general Jody Wilson-Raybould.

"The statement contained highly defamatory comments about Prime Minister Trudeau," it reads.
Trudeau has been under fire for the last two months over allegations that there was pressure on Wilson-Raybould to interfere in criminal proceedings against Quebec construction giant SNC-Lavalin. In an appearance before the House justice committee, she said top government officials asked her to help ensure a special legal deal was extended to the company.
She later provided emails, a written statement and a taped recording to the committee.

Scheer's March 29 statement, in part, accused the prime minister of political interference, of lying to Canadians and of corrupt conduct.
Trudeau's lawyer alleges Scheer made false statements, and refers to the Libel and Slander Act of Ontario, which deals with any publicly published material or comments that defame or disparage an individual or their profession.
"The prime minister supports wide-ranging and vigorous political debate on matters of public policy. However, your statement, in its entirety, is beyond the pale of fair debate and is libellous of my client personally and in the way of his occupation as prime minister," Porter writes.
Attempts to 'silence debate'

Scheer has retained legal counsel as well.
His lawyer Peter Downard responded to the letter on Sunday, calling the complaint "entirely without merit."
"It is profoundly disappointing that the prime minister is seeking to silence debate on matters of such great public importance. Mr. Scheer will not be intimidated," he wrote.
The rebuttal also dares the prime minister to proceed with the lawsuit — which Scheer reiterated in his Sunday afternoon news conference — saying the defence will call for evidence, for Trudeau to testify under oath and for members of his government also to testify.
"I will defend myself vigorously on this," Scheer said.

The resignation of Jody Wilson-Raybould from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's cabinet was a significant development in the SNC-Lavalin affair, a controversy that sparked two government-related probes. (Sean Kilpatrick/Canadian Press)
In a statement, the Prime Minister's Office said Scheer was put "on notice that there are consequences for making completely false and libellous statements."
The Opposition leader said the threat was an intimidation tactic intended to push him away from pressing the government about the SNC-Lavalin matter — but that his party will still continue to push the Liberals for more answers.
"If Mr. Trudeau believes he has a case against me, I urge him to follow through on his threat immediately," Scheer said.
"I stand by every single criticism I have made."
  • Read the transcript of the Jody Wilson-Raybould interview with CBC Vancouver

While Scheer has been unrelenting in his criticism of the prime minister, when he speaks in the House of Commons he is protected by Parliamentary privilege. That measure grants a degree of immunity to MPs and Senators for comments made in carrying out their duties in Parliament.
However, anything said outside of the chamber falls under regular defamation laws.
Scheer said he was not aware of any similar letters sent to anyone in his caucus.
Prime ministers who sue

It's uncommon — but not unprecedented — for a sitting prime minister to threaten legal action against another member of Parliament, especially the leader of the Opposition.
A decade ago Stephen Harper launched a $3.5-million libel lawsuit against the Liberal party after it posted website headlines alleging two senior Conservatives attempted to bribe independent MP Chuck Cadman to secure his co-operation on a crucial budget vote that threatened to topple the Liberal minority government in May 2005. The headlines claimed Harper also knew about the alleged bribe.
  • 'I'll continue to speak my voice': Jody Wilson-Raybould 'incredibly open' to future in federal politics

That lawsuit was dropped.


In 1998, Jean Chrιtien threatened to sue Reform Party Leader Preston Manning if he repeated allegations that the prime minister had sold a Senate seat to a longtime friend.


He dropped that threat a year later.

The one thing this proves conclusively is that Trudeau is a complete moron. If there is a trial (which there won't be, this was simply a failed attempt to intimidate) all those involved will be called to testify under oath, and Trudeau has already been shown a liar.........


The dimwit thought he could smother this fire by pouring more gasoline on it.


Dumb, stupid, moronic, illogical, simply beyond comprehension by anyone with a functioning intellect. (that excludes Trudeau)

Perhaps Scheer should apologize for for saying that there were no concerns about job loss when the record is pretty clear that there were major concerns about job loss.

It is amazing to watch this guy looking worse that Trudeau.

How is that even possible?

Actually it's hilarious that Captain Greasy is digging himself further into the SNC Goat-Rodeo hole with this attempt to gag another MP (not even in his own party this time), and the Conservatives will get all kinds of mileage out'a this next PMO stumble.

Copy/Paste,,, not directly related but good anyways

Subject: Fwd: Whoever Mike is I agree with his comments

Whoever Mike is, he is certainly not alone. These are my personal
feelings as well. We have a great Country, we just need leadership.
Not touchy, feely leadership, BUT real leadership for all of Canada.
Quebec has $7/day daycare and guess who is paying for that. $2.3
billion in so called Equalization payments from our Federal Tax
Dollars. For shame!

My fellow Canadians,I ask, what is wrong with our politicians? Are
they stupid before we elect them, or do they turn stupid after.
Reports that we are loosing $80,000,000.00 dollars per day, because we
can not get product to market. How utterly stupid. How many hospitals,
schools, roads etc. etc. could be built with this money. All this held
up because some Indian tribe is concerned about their sacred hunting
grounds. What bull shit.

For God’s sake in the name of what is good for Canada build the pipe
line. Now the Alberta government say they are going to buy more rail
tanker cars. What about the so called carbon foot print in building
the tanker cars and the carbon fuel used to run the train engines and
where the hell are they shipping the oil to. More bull shit. How do
they even know that the rail companies have the capacity to haul more
rail cars.

Climate change. For God’s sake everyone knows the climate is
changing, it has been changing since the big bang billions of years
ago. Hell a million years ago Alberta was covered by an ocean. A
hundred thousand years ago Alberta was covered in ice as was most of
North America. The climate is always changing and has been since the
beginning of time. There are fossils of palm trees in the arctic. It
is the way our planet works. I remember in the 1970’s the same
scientists told us we were entering into a Mimi ice age and that C02
was good.

Now the government is going to tax us until we bleed and the carbon
tax will not do one damn thing to change the climate.GM closes a plant
in Oshawa and the Trudeau government thinks the sky is falling because
2500 workers will be out of work. There are 125,000 plus oil workers
out of work in Alberta because of inept politicians.

Trudeau comes to Calgary and gives us his usual feel good platitudes.
He says he feels our pain. What an asshole. He never paid for a
utility bill for gas or electricity in his entire life but he wants to
tax me until I change my behaviour and force me to use fewer fossil
fuels. Turn off the lights, turn down the thermostat, put on another
sweater, don’t put up Christmas lights and save Mother Earth. What
bullshit. This Trudeau person is a weak do nothing jerk. Simply by
his lack of action he is deeply hurting my Canada and I dislike him
intensely for that.
My rant,Mike

Holy Christ dude, what f*cking colour is the sky in your world?? I love how you ALT-left retards regard truth and fact to be "libel".
JWR's e-mails and recorded phone calls pretty much proves political interference and corruption.

As for the jobs line of bullshit, 10's of thousands of good paying jobs have dried up because of Groper's policies, and his whining about social licence and contracts during the Harper years. His policies have negatively targeted our oil & gas sector, our mining sector, our manufacturing sector and our agricultural sector, all of which account for around 80% of Canada's GDP. Didn't hear any concern about ALL those jobs that the Gropetards have cost. But if you're f*cking stupid enough to believe the Gropetard narrative about jobs, well then there's really no point discussing anything politically related with you.

They say you can't fix stupid but they're wrong, you can. Please, do the world a favour and get yourself neutered.

Scheer promises SNC-Lavalin documents

Quote:

OTTAWA - Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer plans to present new documents related to the SNC-Lavalin controversy this afternoon.
His announcement is set for 2 p.m. eastern time at the National Press Theatre in Ottawa.
A Saturday afternoon release from the Conservatives offers no more details, and party spokespeople did not immediately respond to a request for comment Sunday morning.
The Tories have been hammering Prime Minister Justin Trudeau over the SNC-Lavalin affair since the Globe and Mail first broke the story in early February.
Citing unnamed sources, the newspaper reported that aides in the PMO and others had pressured former attorney general Jody Wilson-Raybould to intervene in the prosecution of the Montreal-based engineering and construction giant.
The director of public prosecutions decided last fall not to negotiate a deferred-prosecution agreement with the company, which is facing charges of bribery related to business in Libya.
Wilson-Raybould later resigned from cabinet, claiming she had been removed from her post in a January shuffle because she wouldn't bow to the pressure from Trudeau and others.
Last week, Trudeau expelled Wilson-Raybould and Jane Philpott from the Liberal caucus for what he described as breaking the bonds of trust with their fellow MPs over the government's handling of the SNC-Lavalin affair.

Liberals defend PM's threat to sue Scheer

Quote:

Scheer revealed Sunday that he'd received a letter from Trudeau's lawyer, Julian Porter, serving notice of a possible libel suit over a statement issued on March 29, in which the Conservative leader accused Trudeau of leading a campaign to politically interfere with the criminal prosecution of Montreal engineering giant SNC-Lavalin and directing his former attorney general, Jody Wilson-Raybould, to break the law.
The notice is not an actual lawsuit, just a threat that one might come — a standard first step in a defamation claim. In the Commons on Monday, Scheer repeatedly taunted the Liberals to bring it on.
"Canadians are looking forward to the prime minister finally appearing under oath and testifying in a setting that he, himself, cannot control," Scheer said, repeatedly asking the government to set a date for legal proceedings to begin.
Scheer denied having edited or deleted any posts on Twitter...…………...read more in link

McKenna criticized for plan to give Loblaw $12M for new fridges

Quote:

Environment Minister Catherine McKenna is defending the decision to give up to $12 million in funding to Loblaw so it can install more energy-efficient fridges.
That comes just a year and a half after the company fought against raising the minimum wage, admitted to a 14-year bread price-fixing scheme and ended up in a tax court battle last year that saw it ordered to pay back taxes worth roughly $368 million related to a banking subsidiary in the Caribbean.
READ MORE: Loblaw admits to bread price-fixing for 14 years
"Installing new refrigerators results in 50,000 vehicles off the road every year, and Loblaw is also putting in money," said McKenna to reporters on Tuesday when questioned about why Loblaw warranted the funding.
"There are all sorts of projects we've been doing with companies, with cities making investments. We're all in this together. We need to make sure we're working really hard to reduce our emissions, that we're taking action in an affordable way and putting a price on pollution but giving the money back."
She continued: "We need to take action across the board. Everyone has to be reducing their emissions."

Loblaw, which brought in $800 million in earnings last year, will get $12 million under the Liberals' new Low Carbon Economy Challenge Champion stream.
That program is part of the Low Carbon Economy Leadership Fund, which allocated roughly $2 billion to fund clean technology to reduce carbon emissions.
The first recipient under the Low Carbon Economy Challenge Champion stream, announced in January 2019, was a project by Enwave Energy Corporation to use deep, cold water from Lake Ontario to cool hospitals and other government, educational and highrise buildings in downtown Toronto.
But the announcement by McKenna on Monday has prompted criticism from the opposition parties and both civil and taxpayer advocates who are questioning why the government is giving money to help a profitable company retrofit the fridges in 370 stores and whether there are checks in place to monitor the funds.
The $12 million is set to be used by Loblaw for retrofits scheduled to take place between 2019 and 2022.
But it is not clear at this time whether the $12 million was given out in one chunk or whether it will be broken down as Loblaw hits retrofit targets, particularly given 2019 is an election year that could potentially see the Liberals — and their emissions-reduction focus — booted out of office.

Galen Weston is worth $13.55 billion and @cathmckenna showed up at one of his stores to give his company $12 million - after being found guilty of price fixing bread prices.

Today Trudeau spent $12M of your tax dollars on freezers for Loblaws, who made $800 million in profit last year. Amanda, who has a local grocery store whose freezers just broke, has a message for @cathmckenna and @JustinTrudeau. You have to watch this https://t.co/1XykPEwphFhttps://t.co/KSwt1gMze5

Loblaws: fixed bread prices so staple food harder to buy for the hard pressed, fought raising minimum wage, was charged $360 mil for tax evasion but, in order to do the RIGHT thing are given $12million tax dollars, much of which from the very people they scorn. Wow. #cdnpolihttps://t.co/AAVpyMo7Bq
— Andrew Cash (@AndrewCash) April 9, 2019

Weird, you didn't hit Loblaws with a new tax.
You gave them a free $12 million handout - for new refrigerators!
I guess regular Canadians can pay for it out of the new tax you're sticking *them* with. https://t.co/pIjOvXkFaz
— Aaron Wudrick (@awudrick) April 9, 2019
A funding agreement still needs to be hammered out, according to a press release from Environment and Climate Change Canada on Monday.
McKenna said Loblaw will also be making investments of up to $36 million to reduce emissions, though she did not specify what those investments will go towards.
She said the new fridges will reduce Loblaw emissions by 23 per cent.

A government called. Its centre is missing

Quote:

Threaten to sue, and you must follow through.
It’s a phrase the late Johnnie Cochran might have deployed in the courtroom, and it’s one that should have been barked at Justin Trudeau before he sent a lawyer’s letter Andrew Scheer’s way for the latter’s “defamatory” criticisms on SNC-Lavalin.
But no one did. Or if somebody did speak up, that person was roundly ignored.
And so the stage was set for Trudeau’s limp legal arrow to be snatched out of mid-air by Scheer, turned around at a Sunday afternoon press conference, and stabbed into Trudeau’s backside, the latest act of self-harm in this apparently unending play.
It was as painful as it was predictable. There was no way Trudeau was ever going to follow through and endure the process of discovery on SNC. You don’t shut down two Parliamentary committees, sack two caucus members, and jettison your top two advisors because you’re eager to get to the bottom of something.
Even if Scheer has defamed Trudeau, he’s now called Trudeau’s bluff for all to see. If Trudeau is serious he needs to sue. Because I can guarantee you Scheer will be standing up every day to repeat his allegation, regardless of the limp attempt to chill. Knowing the Conservatives, they’ll soon have a website soliciting donations by tracking how many days it’s been since Trudeau issued his threat. It’s how they roll.
What nobody can figure out at the minute is how the Prime Minister’s Office is rolling. It hasn’t really rolled since Gerry Butts’ head rolled in mid-February.
What the failed legal gambit demonstrates is that no one at the Centre is thinking clearly. Not the Prime Minister. Not his Chief of Staff. Not his Executive Director of Communications and Planning. Not his Director of Communications. And not his Director of Issues Management. Every time they try to turn the corner on SNC they succeed only in stepping on another rake.
The PMO misjudged the will of Jody Wilson-Raybould. They underestimated the character of Jane Philpott. They trashed the brand they spent years building by savaging both off the record. They shut down legitimate enquiries. They even dragged an eminent jurist—Glenn Joyal—into the mud. And then came the silly call to serve the Leader of the Opposition.
What’s less clear is who is making the big calls?
And while the temptation is always to blame the help, the blame is usually more accurately directed toward the person at the top. Until you’ve been in a room with a prime minister—to say nothing of an angry or desperate one—you don’t know how hard it is to push back. The best hire a leader can make it someone who will challenge their bulls**t. Trudeau needs that challenger now more than ever.
It certainly wouldn’t have taken much of a B.S. detector to predict the libel gambit would fail:
PM (red with anger): “Let’s sue.”
PMO: “Are you willing to disclose everything about SNC and testify under oath?”
PM (turns white): “But we’ve got to send a message.”
PMO: “We can. And then Scheer will say ‘bring it on’ and call you a giant wuss for not acting.”
And scene.
The hardest thing to do when those around you are losing their heads is to keep yours. If the Prime Minister doesn’t have anyone capable of keeping their head he needs to go out and find them. Now. And if the Prime Minister isn’t listening to anyone in his office, they need to find someone he’ll listen too. Before it’s too late.
Because—and despite all outward appearances—there is still time and the Prime Minister is not without his powers. The entire resource of government is there to be deployed at his command.
But the key to changing the channel is actually changing the channel, not talking about the need to change the channel. If I see one more Liberal groupie moan about how we’re not talking about the right issue on Twitter I’m going to scream.
If climate change is your bag, then announce a climate change event. Make it the biggest climate change event ever held in Canada. Announce a whole suite of climate change speakers to speak at said climate change event. Do a week’s worth of climate change interviews with climate change journos who don’t give a hoot about the SNC pollution. Get the biggest climate changer on the planet to interview the Prime Minister at his climate change event. Have the Prime Minister visit Barack Obama to pick a climate change fight with Donald J. Trump off the back of it. Then get the Prime Minister to announce the Ottawa Protocol as the successor to the Paris Accord.
And if white nationalism is your thing, haul in the tech companies and get them to do a better job of policing their hate-filled platforms. Leave the podium the next time some white nationalist yobbos try to interrupt your press conference and give them a telling off. While you’re at it, pick fights with Ezra Levant and Maxime Bernier and try to get Scheer caught in the crossfire. Announce a record investment in mosque security and hug every imam you can find from Newfoundland to the Yukon.
But for God’s sake man, don’t send legal letters when you have no intention of following through. Don’t try to sell your dead parrot of a budget from behind a podium with journalists firing SNC bullets your way. And don’t think you can continue to bully or bluff your way through this scandal.
Instead, try going to the National Press Theatre and saying you’re sorry for everything and announce the government will not be offering a deferred prosecution agreement to SNC-Lavalin.
Who knows, it just might work.
