‘I did not want her to lie’: Trudeau rejects Wilson-Raybould’s claims about SNC-Lavalin talk


Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau said he would “never” ask Jody Wilson-Raybould to lie, after an explosive book excerpt from the former Liberal cabinet minister alleged he wanted her to do just that. In the book, Wilson-Raybould describes conversations she had with Trudeau about what would later become publicly known as the SNC-Lavalin affair. The excerpt from her soon-to-be-published book, ‘Indian’ in the Cabinet, was published as an op-ed in The Globe and Mail. Wilson-Raybould said that during those conversations, Trudeau was pushing her to lie about how his team had handled the situation. “I knew what he was really asking. What he was saying. In that moment, I knew he wanted me to lie – to attest that what had occurred had not occurred,” Wilson-Raybould said.
