Wilson-Raybould running as a Liberal in the federal election

Wilson-Raybould running as a Liberal in the federal election”

During Jody Wilson-Raybould's testimony this is the exact line that the Clerk of the Privy Council, Michael Wernick used during one of his meetings with the former Justice Minister. She said she's eager to meet with them.

"I haven't yet had the opportunity to review her entire testimony", Trudeau said earlier this week.

Trudeau's focus was on tinkering with his cabinet as his majority three-year-old government now faces its most serious threat to remaining in office when Canadians vote in a general election this October.

Women's Minister Maryam Monsef took on the global development portfolio in addition to her current job.

Wilson-Raybould was testified on Wednesday that when she was serving as justice minister a year ago, the Liberal government officials leaned over her to help construction firm SNC-Lavalin group inc in order to avoid a corruption trial.

Like Wilson-Raybould before him, MacAulay said he didn't see the move to Veterans Affairs as a demotion.

Trudeau's former top adviser, Gerry Butts - who resigned in an effort to defend the prime minister and the PMO's actions - is expected to testify before the committee next week.

Wilson-Raybould, however, is saying otherwise.

Wilson's remark has prompted the leader of the opposition Conservatice Party to demand Prime Minister's resignation. "And therefore I completely disagree with the characterisation of the former attorney general about these events". That follows a letter Scheer sent Lucki on Thursday, asking her to initiate an investigation.

"We believe that there are reasonable and probable grounds to suspect that the conduct of the Prime Minister's Office has crossed that threshold", the letter says.

MacAulay, Bibeau and Monsef told reporters they will support Trudeau's decision when he determines whether Wilson-Raybould stays in the Liberal caucus after her public criticisms of the way she was treated by Trudeau and his staff.
