A new report from the Ethics Commissioner finds Justin Trudeau violated the Conflict of Interest Act by pressuring former Attorney General Jody Wilson-Raybould to grant a deferred prosecution agreement to engineering giant SNC-Lavalin.

Then we take a deeper look at the accusations that led to Ben Stewart stepping out of the BC Liberal caucus and which MLAs aren’t donating to their party.

And in quick takes we look at coverage of Alan Mullen’s “excellent summer adventure”, the start of the Manitoba election campaign and the death of Deepak Obrhai.
