  Posted on: August 15, 2019

This week, Ethics Commissioner Mario Dion concluded Prime Minister Justin Trudeau inappropriately tried to influence then-justice minister Jody Wilson-Raybould around a prosecution agreement concerning SNC-Lavalin.

How does Dion’s report, which stated that Trudeau tried to influence Wilson-Raybould in many ways, affect how Canadians see this country’s governance and laws?

TRU Law lecturer Jeffrey Meyers has written scholarly articles about constitutional, political and legal theory and is a frequent media commentator on US, Canadian and international political and legal current events.
