Former attorney general Jody Wilson-Raybould has resigned from Federal cabinet, following claims the Prime Minister’s Office pressured her to help Quebec engineering firm SNC-Lavalin avoid criminal prosecution.
“With a heavy heart, I am writing to tender my resignation as the Minister of Veterans Affairs and Associate Minister of National Defence,” Wilson-Raybould wrote in her resignation letter, which she has made public.
Wilson-Raybould’s departure comes one day after Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said her continued membership in cabinet should be an indicator to Canadians that she is not unhappy with his government. “Her presence in cabinet should actually speak for itself," the prime minister said Monday.
