Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Wednesday acknowledged ethics breaches highlighted by an investigation that found he arm-twisted his attorney general to settle a criminal case.

"I disagree with some of (the ethics commissionser's) conclusions but I fully accept this report and take responsibility for everything that happened," he told a news conference of the scandal involving engineering giant SNC-Lavalin.

"But more than just taking responsibility for what happened in the past, it means making sure that this mistake never happens again," he added.
