Trudeau faces critics inside and outside party as Wilson-Raybould scandal swirls

OTTAWA – Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is facing a backlash both within and outside his own party after Jody Wilson-Raybould’s sudden resignation from his cabinet.

While some Liberals have anonymously accused her of being self-centred and disloyal to the party, others have gone to bat for her for being courageous and strong as allegations swirl that Trudeau’s office pressured her to head off a criminal prosecution of Quebec engineering giant SNC-Lavalin.

Liberal staff and MPs are nervous and wanting their own answers about exactly what happened while several Indigenous leaders are accusing Trudeau of sexism and racism in his treatment of her.

Justin should be toast over this fiasco but can we really count on the media and political class to ensure justice is done?

I don’t believe we can. Canada is virtually a Banana Republic under LPC control.
