February 26, 2019

OTTAWA (Reuters) – Former Canadian justice minister Jody Wilson-Raybould on Wednesday will publicly address allegations that senior officials pressured her to help a major firm avoid a corruption trial, a parliamentary official said on Tuesday.

Wilson-Raybould will testify to the House of Commons justice committee at 3:15 pm ET (2015 GMT), said an aide to committee chair Anthony Housefather. The allegations of possibly improper behavior are rocking the government of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau just months before an October election.
