There has been lots of ink spilled and punditry about the SNC Lavalin affair. On the eve of Gerry Butts’ resignation as Justin Trudeau’s principal secretary we sat down to rehash the whole sordid history.

From the dubious actions of SNC Lavalin, to the covert passage of Criminal Code remediation agreements in a 2018 omnibus budget bill, to the intense lobbying by SNC, to the bombshell allegations of PMO interference with Jody Wilson-Raybould and her shuffling out of the Justice portfolio, to the constantly changing narrative from Trudeau himself and culminating in today’s surprise resignation of Butts. We got you covered.

This one was quick and dirty. No prep, no editing, no filter.
