Trudeau admits erosion of trust within his cabinet but denies any wrong doing

Amid the intensifying heat of the SNC-Lavalin scandal, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said on Thursday 7th March that he regretted an erosion of trust within his government but denied that he and his staff had applied inappropriate pressure on his former justice minister.

Transcript of Trudeau's remarks:


"What has become clear through the various testimonies is that over the past months there was an erosion of trust between my office and specifically my former principal secretary and the former Minister of Justice and Attorney General.





I was not aware of that erosion of trust does Prime Minister and leaders of the Federal Ministries.

I should have been in regards to standing up for jobs and defending the integrity of our rule of law.

I continue to say that there was no inappropriate pressure.

I'm obviously reflecting on lessons learned through this and I think Canadians expect that of us that anytime we go through periods of internal disagreement and indeed challenges to internal trust as we have there are things that we have to reflect on and understand and do better next time."
