I know I can't legally oppose the motion, but I'm very disappointed that one of the two official languages hasn't been entirely respected.
I'm not opposing the motion because I don't have the power to do so as I'm not a member of a recognized party.

Thank you, Mr. Chair.
Earlier we talked about the Privy Council Office's request for a legal opinion that you moreover prepared—you said so earlier—and that, at the minister's request, you didn't forward to the Privy Council Office.
Now that the minister is no longer here, could you send us that legal opinion so the committee can take note of it?

Something has been bothering me since these discussions started. In eight days after returning from a trip, the minister decides to paint yourself into a corner: she decides to start a prosecution and accepts no advice.
You offer her the option of seeking an outside legal opinion and you tell her she can even discuss the case directly with the prosecutor. However, she accepts no advice and stubbornly maintains that she will go to trial.
A little later, SNC-Lebanon loses $1.6 billion in three months, and its stock falls 35%. That doesn't prompt her either to consider whether she might perhaps reconsider the matter.
Did she give you a reason why she remained so resolute in her decision, not wanting to listen to anyone?

I'm going to give you a taste of our interpretation in the House of Commons.
If my understanding is correct, the minister made the decision not to use this new legislation on deferred prosecution agreements after only 12 days, that is to say, in early September, September 16.
When did you, in the Prime Minister's Office, become certain that she would not change her mind or, first of all, that she had made that decision? When were you informed that she had made the decision not to use the act but instead to allow the prosecution to proceed?

During your dinner on December 5, was it she who raised the matter at the end of the meal, or was it you? It was she who raised the matter?

Did the two resigning ministers vote for the bill a year ago, the bill that would allow these agreements?

I have a final question.
Under the bill, the minister or acting minister may intervene and go with an agreement instead of a prosecution. Until what point may the minister intervene? Is it true that the minister may intervene to reach an out-of-court agreement right up until the judge makes a decision, until a judgement is rendered?

Thank you, Mr. Chair.
Ms. Wilson-Raybould, I, too, want to thank you for being here today. I want to say that what you're doing today takes a lot of courage, and I appreciate it.
That said, my questions may lead us down a bit of a different path. I'd like to revisit the reasons for your decision. I realize that there are certain things you can't talk about, so you can answer as we go.
My first question is about why you didn't think a remediation agreement should be negotiated with SNC-Lavalin. Would I be correct to assume that you came to your decision after reviewing the criteria in sections 715.31 and 715.32 of the Criminal Code?

Did you discuss the reasons why you did not think it was appropriate to negotiate such an agreement? Did you discuss them with the Prime Minister or someone from his office?

I realize that you can't—that, in your view, you can't—tell us the reasons you felt it was not appropriate to negotiate a remediation agreement.
