"I'm absolutely confident in the Prime Minister's leadership", Goldsmith-Jones said.
Have we become a country where government isolate and contain the issues for no other objective then to hide a trend, create a ripple effect, make it a he said, she said? Their defiant actions are profound and, I dare say, poignant.
By extension she has endorsed the former attorney general's refusal to overrule that decision.
"We will not comment on this matter", SNC-Lavalin spokesman Nicolas Ryan said on Thursday when asked if the company had warned Trudeau of possible job losses in case of a guilty verdict.
Trudeau denies applying any inappropriate pressure and insists he and his officials were only pointing out that prosecution could endanger thousands of jobs.
SNC-Lavalin is facing allegations that former executives paid bribes to win contracts in Libya under Muammar Gaddafi's regime, which fell in 2011.
"It's a pseudo-scandal. It's crap".
That pressure was not illegal, she said, but "raised serious red flags in my view".
He acknowledged there had been a breakdown in trust and communications between his office and Ms Wilson-Raybould. "These people are delusional".
SNC-Lavalin lobbied the government for the creation of a remediation agreement tool - but the federal director of public prosecutions ruled late a year ago that its case was ill-suited for such an agreement.
A court conviction would bar SNC-Lavalin from bidding on government contracts for 10 years, possibly forcing it to cut jobs in Quebec and leaving it vulnerable to a takeover that could see its headquarters leave the province. SNC-Lavalin is a Quebec-based engineering and construction company which holds a special place in the hearts of Quebec voters, according to Mr Bociurkiw. The new AG has not ruled out approving a settlement.
'Erosion of trust': Justin Trudeau says mistakes were made in handling political crisis
Before the House of Commons justice committee, Butts said there were no efforts made by the Prime Minister's Office to politically interfere with the director of public prosecution's decision, but rather that they suggested Wilson-Raybould seek outside legal opinion.
Earlier this week, a new poll showed support for the beleaguered prime minister and his Liberals falling for the first time behind the opposition Tories, amid calls for Trudeau's resignation.
The next day, Butts, Trudeau's former aide, offered testimony of his own.
The differences among Canadian media outlets, for example, are "relatively narrow compared to the chasms between Fox and MSNBC or CNN".
Wilson-Raybould has said she believes she was shuffled from Justice to Veterans Affairs in January as punishment for refusing to intervene in the case. One senior party member, who had previously voiced concerns, said Mr Trudeau was right not to apologise. Trump said sympathetic things about Russian Federation during the campaign and was elected despite that and other controversies, giving him "the sense that he can do anything and his base will still follow him". If it ever comes off, It will be an opportunity for more images of the kind in which Trudeau and his spin-doctors have specialized over the past three years - a chance to highlight his compassion, empathy and sensitivity, while apologizing for historic wrongs that he personally had nothing to do with. Women make up half of his cabinet.
But there is a need to learn what our two Liberal MPs, Paul Lefebvre (Sudbury) and Marc Serré (Nickel Belt) feel about this affair. The fallout continued for the ruling Liberal Party as Treasury Board president Jane Philpott resigned from cabinet, because she lost confidence in the government over the handling of the file.
"There was no inappropriate pressure", he said, adding "that the decision was hers alone".
Since their majority victory October 2015, the Trudeau Liberals have sparked outrage among pro-life and pro-family advocates for their abortion extremism and promotion of homosexuality.
Antonia Maioni, McGill University's dean of arts, said citizens of every democracy will look at the Trump scandals and say everything else is small potatoes.
"I don't think there's anybody that thinks that they've handled this well", he added. "Leaders fall in parliamentary systems for many other reasons beyond personal scandal".
