MP ‘should be ashamed of him­self’

The Glengarry News - - The Opinion Page -

The Edi­tor, Glen­garry-Prescott-Rus­sell's Lib­eral MP, Fran­cis Drouin, just played a key role in the Lib­eral SNC-Lavalin cover-up. He should be ashamed of him­self. The Jus­tice Com­mit­tee called an emer­gency meet­ing to dis­cuss call­ing Jody Wil­son-Ray­bould to tes­tify again on the SNC-Lavalin Af­fair.

Be­fore the Com­mit­tee could even be­gin dis­cus­sions, Mr. Drouin tabled a mo­tion to shut-down the meet­ing. Such a cyn­i­cal move. MP Drouin did this right af­ter the highly re­spected Or­ga­ni­za­tion for Eco­nomic Co-op­er­a­tion and De­vel­op­ment’s (OECD) Work­ing Group on Bribery re­leased a pub­lic state­ment ex­press­ing con­cern that Justin Trudeau in­ter­fered in the crim­i­nal pros­e­cu­tion of SNC-Lavalin. With this shame­ful act, MP Fran­cis Drouin has struck a se­ri­ous blow against his own in­tegrity. Fran­cis Drouin does not de­serve to be re-elected. The peo­ple of Glen­garry-Prescott-Rus­sell de­serve bet­ter. Pierre Lemieux Con­ser­va­tive Can­di­date for GPR Cum­ber­land, ON
