Host Sarah Turnbull is joined by /Thread panelists Shannon Proudfoot of Maclean’s and David Reevely of The Canadian Press. The trio discuss: updates to the SNC-Lavalin controversy including, Liberal MPs pushing back against Jody Wilson-Raybould and Jane Philpott, committee investigations, and the company’s backtracking of their CEO’s comments about job losses; Andrew Scheer’s mass-text to throw shade on the Liberal’s carbon tax plan; fallout from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report; and Apple’s Monday announcement unveiling new subscription services.
