On the heels of the SNC-Lavalin corruption scandal, Justin Trudeau and his Liberal government have been accused of interfering in yet another criminal prosecution.
Mark Norman served as Canada’s Vice Chief of the Defence Staff. He was charged with one count of breach of trust for allegedly leaking sensitive documents related to the procurement of a supply ship for the Royal Canadian Navy.
However, the Crown recently stayed its charge against Vice-Admiral Norman, citing that there was “no reasonable prospect of conviction.” And Norman’s defence team has been clear all along that the Prime Minister’s Office was attempting to direct the prosecution.
There is overwhelming evidence that Justin Trudeau and the Liberal government politically interfered in this case and tried to destroy Vice-Admiral Norman.
They withheld key documents that would have exonerated Mr. Norman
They used code names in email exchanges to avoid access to information requests.
They had government lawyers coach witnesses.
This entire case has been politically motivated since day one.
As the prosecution made clear: the documents Justin Trudeau and the Liberals were fighting to keep secret were the very documents that caused Vice-Admiral Norman’s charges to be dropped.
This is a damning indictment of the government.
There is most certainly political interference at play here.
Canadians have a lot of questions and we need to demand answers.
You can help us get to the truth about why Trudeau tried to ruin Vice-Admiral Norman’s career and reputation.
Together with my Conservative and NDP colleagues, who sit on the Standing Committee on National Defence, I have called for an emergency meeting to examine the Trudeau government’s conduct and/or involvement in the investigation and prosecution of Vice-Admiral Mark Norman.
Just as with the SNC-Lavalin corruption scandal, the Liberals on the committee will try to stop the truth from coming out.
Help me pressure them to do the right thing.
Send an e-mail to the Liberal committee members, and the boss who gives them their marching orders.
