Trudeau and Liberal Party Expel 2 ex-ministers at the Center of Storm



OTTAWA – Having promised an open and cooperative policy, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in Canada ran Tuesday from his party two prominent former female cabinet ministers who have been at the center of a partying political crisis on his handling of a criminal case.

Attempt to divert the country's attention from the controversy, Mr. Trudeau was in a hard place politically.

The two women were seen by many as symbols of his progressive feminist government. But within his liberal party, they were considered insignificant backstabbers who kept their heads alive for weeks with new information campaigns celebrated by the press and opposition parties.

The problems began two months ago when accusations discovered that Mr Trudeau and his assistants pressed in an inappropriate way Jody Wilson-Raybould, the former Justice and Advocate General, to settle a criminal case against SNC-Lavalin, a major corporation based in Montreal.

Until Tuesday, Trudeau was hopefully prevented from criticizing one of his former ministers. "I've approached this situation with patience and understanding," he said.

"I was publicly accused of caucus people not being loyal, trying to bring the prime minister, politically motivated, and being motivated by my friendship with Jody Wilson-Raybould," said Mrs Philpott wrote. "These attacks were based on inaccuracies and lies. I did not start the crisis now facing the party or the prime minister. Nor did Jody Wilson-Raybould."

The two former Cabinet ministers will not be allowed to re-elect under Liberal Party banner in October elections and is likely to face liberal opponents in their constituencies if they choose to run for re-election.

Unless they participate in one of the opposition parties, they will also not have access to partial economic, logistical and polling resources.

Both were political neophytes during the last election in 2015. Mrs Philpott is a doctor and Mrs Raybould-Wilson a lawyer who was also a native leader in British Columbia. Nor is there a well-developed, personal political machine.

Mr. Trudeau's efforts to turn political attention away from the case have so far failed.

On Tuesday, he concluded his announcement with a campaign style speech in which he, among other things, stressed the government's efforts to mitigate climate change and attack the Conservative plan to kill carbon taxes.
