Despite Conflict of Interest and Ethics Commissioner Mario Dion releasing a damning report involving Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, a local MP still supports him.

Dion released a comprehensive report that found Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to be in violation of section nine of the Conflict of Interest Act, as he tried to influence a criminal prosecution in the SNC-Lavalin scandal.

Outgoing West Vancouver-Sunshine Coast-Sea to Sky Country Liberal MP Pamela Goldsmith-Jones says Trudeau has accepted responsibility and she thinks that’s a good thing.

A statement from the Office of the Prime Minister quoted Justin Trudeau as saying, “my objective was, and always will be, to stand up for people’s jobs and livelihoods across the country.”

He went on to say, “the buck stops with me, and I take full responsibility for everything that happened.”

Goldsmith-Jones won’t run in the October 21st Federal Election but hinted that the party is close to naming a candidate.
