Justice committee ends SNC-Lavalin probe

OTTAWA—The Liberal-dominated justice committee has pulled the plug on its probe of the SNC-Lavalin affair, prompting renewed howls of outrage from opposition MPs.

Conservative and New Democrat MPs unsuccessfully pressed the House of Commons' committee today to recall former attorney general Jody Wilson-Raybould so she could shed more light on the simmering controversy.

Jail time for OD death

A 25-year-old man who sold his long-time friend drugs that caused a fatal overdose has been sentenced to five years in prison for his role in the death.

Justice Michael Harpur's sentence specifies that Ryan Walker will not serve the full sentence due to a combination of time already served and his co-operation with another court case related to the death of Shawn Kelly.
