The spotlight in the SNC-Lavalin affair has shifted to rookie Justice Minister David Lametti now that a court has rejected the company's bid to force the public prosecutor to pursue an alternative to criminal proceedings. In Iqaluit on Friday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau still refused to apologize to resigned cabinet ministers Jody Wilson-Raybould and Jane Philpott over the controversy.

Andrew Scheer says Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is not being honest with Canadians about the SNC-Lavalin scandal and should resign.

Meng Wanzhou, the chief financial officer of Huawei Technologies, arrives at British Columbia Supreme Court in Vancouver Wednesday where her defence lawyer raised “serious concerns” about political motivations in her case. The executive was arrested in December at Vancouver's airport at the request of U.S. authorities and Canada announced last week it intends to proceed with extradition.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau addresses the resignation of Treasury Board president Jane Philpott at a climate rally after she stepped down over his handling of the SNC-Lavalin affair. Speaking at a Liberal Party event in Toronto, Trudeau thanked Philpott for her service while emphasizing the room for disagreement and debate in a democracy.

During a stop Monday in Charlottetown Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was asked if Jody Wilson-Raybould will be allowed to remain in caucus and seek re-election as a Liberal. Trudeau also says his government will continue to stand up for two Canadian men detained in China, in light of new serious allegations.

The Nova Scotia Supreme Court has acquitted Glen Assoun of a murder for which he served almost 17 years in prison. The acquittal came Friday, after federal Justice Minister David Lametti ordered a new trial saying there was a reasonable basis to say Assoun had been wrongfully convicted.

Wilson-Raybould’s version of the SNC saga is consistent with the government line — from his perspective, the only difference is how the discussions between her office and the PMO are being interpreted.  (The Canadian Press)
