NewsAlert: Trudeau breached Conflict of Interest Act, says ethics commissioner

OTTAWA — Ethics commissioner Mario Dion says Prime Minister Justin Trudeau contravened a section of the Conflict of Interest Act during the so-called SNC-Lavalin affair.

In a report out today, the commissioner says Trudeau used his position of authority over Jody Wilson-Raybould, who was justice minister at the time, in an effort to convince her to halt a criminal prosecution of the Montreal engineering giant.
