Justin Trudeau top aide testify: Weds on SNC-Lavalin case.

A former top aide to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will on Wednesday address allegations that the aide inappropriately pressured a cabinet minister to help SNC-Lavalin avoid being tried for corruption, a parliamentary officer said.

Gerald Butts, who quit as Trudeau’s principal secretary last month, will testify to the House of Commons justice committee from 10 am ET (1500 GMT) to noon on Wednesday, the clerk of the committee said by email on Monday.

The question of what exactly senior officials did or did not do last year to aid construction firm SNC-Lavalin Group Inc has rapidly become the biggest crisis of Trudeau’s tenure in the run-up to an October election which polls suggest he might lose.
