OTTAWA—It really does feel like a soap opera. The “it,” of course, is the ongoing SNC-Lavalin saga and its numerous plot twists. A little more than a week ago, the Liberals brought down their last budget prior to the election. It was meant to be a scene-changer and a launch pad for new storytelling. To date, most of the budget’s program announcements have either fallen off the news agenda or are found way down story boards behind that other menacing tale.
