SNC Lavalin case creates a lot of problems for the Trudeau government.
“I have been considering the events that have shaken the federal government in recent weeks”
– Jane Philpott
MP Jane Philpott announced Monday morning she retires from the Treasury Board citing the SNC Lavalin case. In a letter she posted on Twitter, she mentions she needs to support former cabinet members in such times and to stand for her “core values, ethical responsibilities and constitutional obligations.”
Philpott is the Second Minister to resign from her position because of the SNC Lavalin case, as Jody Wilson-Raybould resigned from Veterans Affairs on February 12, 2019.
