Finance Minister denies any wrongdoing in the SNC-Lavalin affair
Finance Minister Bill Morneau was one of the names singled out by former attorney general Jody Wilson-Raybould, during her testimony to the Justice Committee hearing on Wednesday.
Today, he had a chance to speak about it.
Morneau told reporters, that he doesn't think he, nor his staff, did anything wrong in pushing for a deal that SNC-Lavalin jobs remain in Canada.
Yesterday, Wilson-Raybould detailed what she described as a four-month-long pressure campaign, including veiled threats, from Trudeau, his senior staff, Canada's top public servant and the finance minister's office, for her to intervene and order a "remediation agreement" for the company to help it avoid criminal corruption charges.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says it will be up to the country's ethics watchdog to decide who is telling the truth.
