Liberal MP Jody Wilson-Raybould secretly recorded a conversation with former Clerk of the Privy Council of Canada Michael Wernick in which she claims the country’s top public servant issued veiled threats on SNC-Lavalin.

She included the audio recording as part of an additional written submission to the House of Commons justice committee.
