Ottawa, ON – Conservative Finance Shadow Minister Pierre Poilievre today will begin a marathon speech in the House of Commons to demand the Liberals agree to re-open the Justice Committee’s investigation into Justin Trudeau's SNC-Lavalin cover-up.

There remain at least a dozen witnesses with direct knowledge of the Prime Minister’s interference to stop SNC's criminal trial for fraud and bribery, including senior PMO officials Elder Marques and Mathieu Bouchard, the Prime Minister’s Chief of Staff Katie Telford, and Trudeau himself.

Conservatives want them all to testify now that explosive audio recordings and text messages have destroyed Trudeau's claims that he knew nothing about former Attorney General Jody Wilson-Raybould’s complaints that he and his team were inappropriately pressuring her to block the trial.

"I will stop speaking and cede the floor when Justin Trudeau ends the cover-up and allows all the players to testify in his scandal,” Poilievre said.
