    ctvnews.ca/politics/[Trudeau and Ottawa liberal mayor Watson's favourite] SNC-Lavalin corporation and 2 former top Execs charged with fraud, forgery by RCMP [conveniently shortly after federal election day over]:

    https://www.ctvnews.ca/politics/snc-...rcmp-1.5597229

    [edit: personally I think the RCMP under the liberals, and the provincial OPP under the McGuinty and Wynne liberals in Ontario, should be investigated, say by a committee, for political control/interference by the liberals when in power - the liberals may be able to more or less tie up such committees both federally and provincially, but at least nuggets of the truth just might see the light of day, for public viewing, more than otherwise.]
