Wilson-Raybould says she's running as a Liberal in fall federal election

"The prime minister asked me to help out, to find a solution here for SNC, citing that if there is no DPA there would be many jobs lost and that SNC would move from Montreal", said Wernick in an alleged meeting.

Trudeau has denied the SNC-Lavalin affair had anything to do with Wilson-Raybould's move, saying she would still be justice minister had former Treasury Board president Scott Brison not suddenly chose to leave politics.

She told the committee she challenged him in the meeting, asking if he was interfering with her role as attorney general.

Trudeau is, however, standing his ground, maintaining he and his staff have acted "appropriately" and "professionally" at all times. They noted Trudeau has not been in the Commons for question period since Wilson-Raybould testified late Wednesday afternoon.

However, she opined that, when she had not budged her position, she was shunted to another office, as veteran affairs minister.

SNC-Lavalin has been campaigning to be allowed to take part in Canada's Remediation Agreement programme, which came into force in September 2018.
It faces charges laid in 2015 alleging that between 2001 and 2011 the company offered millions of dollars in bribes in return for work in Libya.
It wants to avoid a lengthy trial.

Wilson's remark has prompted the leader of the opposition Conservatice Party to demand Prime Minister's resignation.

In a cabinet shuffle on January 14, Wilson-Rayboult was moved from her position as minister of justice and given the lesser cabinet position of minister of veterans affairs. "And therefore I completely disagree with the characterisation of the former attorney general about these events".

All of the officials implicated by Wilson-Raybould have denied inappropriately pressuring her to interfere.

On Feb. 12, she resigned from cabinet but has remained a Liberal MP. She says for four months she was subjected to consistent and sustained pressure in the SNC-Lavalin case.
