Flashback: Canada’s PM Trudeau found guilty by ethics commissioner

Al Jazeera: 'Canada‘s ethics commissioner said Prime Minister Justin Trudeau improperly pressured a former attorney general to halt the criminal prosecution of a company, a development that could imperil his chances for re-election.

'The report comes just before the official start of campaigning for the October 21 general election and it threatens to bring to light once again a scandal that rocked the government earlier this year, causing a drop in poll ratings that had since abated.

'The report said Trudeau “directed his staff to find a solution that would safeguard SNC-Lavalin’s business interest in Canada.” ...

'The scandal led to multiple resignations, including that of Gerry Butts, Trudeau’s top aide and best friend, and has also damaged the party for weeks. Butts has since rejoined Trudeau’s re-election campaign team.'
