The prime minister offered no apologies to Wilson-Raybould, but conceded he should have been aware about an "erosion of trust" between her and his office.
Wilson-Raybould's resignation and testimony before the Commons justice committee led to the departure of Gerald Butts, former principal secretary to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, and the resignation of Jane Philpott as health minister, Philpott declaring "I have lost confidence in how the government had dealt with this matter and in how it has responded to the issues raised".
"I'm sure it's very disappointing for him to hear that the trust broke down to that degree and I think moving forward his commitment to examining the processes in his own office and examining that role in particular are very important takeaways", Hajdu said.
"I remind the Prime Minister again, he's not the Prime Minister of Quebec, he's the Prime Minister for all Canadians", Moe said. He added that Wilson-Raybould "did not come to me and I wish she had". The retort prompted Trudeau to backtrack, she said.
He continued to claim there was "no inappropriate pressure" placed on the former justice minister to intervene in SNC-Lavalin's criminal prosecution.
The Montreal-based firm faces corruption charges for allegedly paying tens of millions of dollars in bribes between 2001 and 2011 to secure Libyan government contracts under the rule of Muammar Gadhafi.
A DPA could allow SNC-Lavalin to pay a fine in lieu of a criminal conviction, which would bar it from bidding on federal contracts.
Trudeau acknowledged that during a face-to-face meeting with Wilson-Raybould on September 17, she told him she'd made up her mind not to intervene with the public prosecutor's decision.
She said Trudeau and top-level staffers "hounded" her over four months when she was justice minister in a "consistent and sustained effort to seek to politically interfere" in the prosecution of SNC-Lavalin, including "veiled threats" against her.
While she said she did agree to "have a further conversation with my deputy and the clerk", she also added that she then stated, "but that these 10 conversations would not change my mind". She speculated that she was shuffled from the attorney general position to veterans affairs minister because of her refusal to act.
As he has said since the scandal broke about a month ago, Trudeau reiterated Thursday that he will "stand up for Canadian jobs". When the former Attorney General refused, she was sacked.
She focused on gender discrimination, balance, and equality, but also said she takes the same approach to every job she holds whether it's the boardroom or the cabinet table.
"We're still trying to use the parliamentary tools at our disposal to get to the bottom of this scandal and break through the coverup Justin Trudeau is engaged in", he said.
On Wednesday, the Liberal MPs on the committee, who have a 5-4 majority, blocked an opposition call for her return.
"As we look over the past weeks, there are many lessons to be learned and many things we would have liked to have done differently".
In its October 19 submission to the Federal Court, the company said while the public prosecutor has discretion to decide whether to open negotiations on a remediation agreement, this discretion "is not unfettered and must be exercised reasonably" under the law.
