Lawyer Kyla Lee appeared on the Jill Bennett Show on CKNW to speak about the alleged demotion of Jody Wilson-Raybould and the SNC Lavalin #lavscam affair. The interview centred around Wilson-Raybould's track record as Justice Minister, and criticism of the numerous bills that she introduced and championed while in the position.
Kyla Lee spoke with Richard Zussman of Global News for the News Hour at 6 about the second report in the BC Legislature spending scandal, and whether or not this new report may impede the prosecution.
