Conservatives, NDP call for emergency committee meeting on Mark Norman case

Conservatives, NDP call for emergency committee meeting on Mark Norman case

Elise von Scheel · CBC News · 



The letter alleges that in 2018 the prime minister influenced the case by anticipating that the RCMP's investigation into the matter would result in a prosecution, signalling he had access to inside information.

And secondly, it claims that the government tried to interfere in the shipbuilding contract, then smeared Norman's reputation when information about that attempt came to light. 

"This has had a deleterious effect on the morale of the Canadian Armed Forces," it states.

The MPs called for the committee to be reconvened within five days. Four committee members can force a meeting, but the study will not be undertaken unless supported by the majority of MPs on the committee.


Why did the Conservatives who had mitigating information not give it to the RCMP 2 years ago? Waiting for a scandal to grow much guys? Why did they give the information to the defence and not those investigating?
