Who do you trust in the SNC-Lavalin controversy?
Justin Trudeau blames an 'erosion of trust' and miscommunication for the ongoing controversy
Erosion of trust? Political interference? He says. She says.
Facing mounting criticisms from the opposition parties and declining poll numbers, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau finally held a press conference to address the recent SNC-Lavalin controversy on Thursday.
He blamed "an erosion of trust" between his former advisor Gerald Butts and former Attorney General Jody Wilson-Raybould for the fallout.
His statement came more than one week after Wilson-Raybould accused his government for "consistent, sustained effort" to interfere in the SNC-Lavalin case, and one day after Butts presented a different version of events on Parliament Hill.
