MPs told not to talk publicly about Raj Grewal resignation

The chief government whip is telling Liberal MPs not to publicly discuss outgoing MP Raj Grewal’s resignation.

“I would ask that you please refrain from speculating or commenting publicly about Raj’s announcement,” reads an internal memo sent by chief government whip Mark Holland. “You can also refer any media questions to my office.”

The Liberal Party’s website for Grewal has also been deleted. Grewal, who represented the Ontario riding of Brampton East, announced his resignation on Facebook yesterday.
