Conservatives lay groundwork for marathon filibuster after Liberals shut down SNC-Lavalin probe

Thursday 10:50 GMT

The Conservatives are laying the groundwork for a potential filibuster that could see MPs forced for the third time in a year to spend the night voting in the House of Commons.

The first 21-hour filibuster was in March 2018, as a way to try to pressure the government into allowing former national security adviser Daniel Jean to testify before committee about the Jaspal Atwal affair.
