The Globe and Mail reports that “A Liberal-dominated Parliamentary committee has quashed an effort by opposition parties to further probe the SNC-Lavalin affair … [and] … The House of Commons Ethics Committee, on which the governing Liberals hold the most seats, voted down a proposal to hear from federal Ethics Commissioner Mario Dion and up to nine witnesses who have been prevented from offering some testimony because of cabinet confidentiality.

I do not disagree with those who oppose tinkering with rules of cabinet confidentiality, but I doubt that any of the Liberal MPs thought about that: they voted the Party Line, just as they would if they were in Beijing.
