The House of Commons justice committee had a packed day of testimonies on the SNC-Lavalin affair Wednesday.
Among those testifying were Prime Minister Justin Trudeau‘s former principal secretary Gerald Butts, Privy Council Clerk Michael Wernick and Deputy Minister of Justice Nathalie Drouin.
All three responded to allegations that members of the Prime Minister’s Office pressured former attorney general Jody Wilson-Raybould to interfere in the criminal case of Quebec engineering giant SNC-Lavalin.

The testimonies grew tense at times, with heated exchanges between members of the committee and witnesses.
Butts’ testimony was among the most anticipated. The former Trudeau adviser refuted Wilson-Raybould’s recollection of events, saying he interpreted conversations very differently.
Global News had live coverage of the testimonies, which can be found below.
