Liberals consider emergency meeting to decide whether to drop Wilson-Raybould, Philpott from caucus

Some Liberal MPs are pushing for an emergency meeting to decide whether Jody Wilson-Raybould and Jane Philpott should be kicked out of caucus to contain the SNC-Lavalin scandal.

The Liberal caucus executive held a conference call Sunday night. No decision or formal announcement has been made about a caucus-wide meeting, which could happen as early as tonight.

There’s a growing sense in the Liberal caucus that the two former cabinet ministers are damaging the Liberal brand, and that the continued slow leak of information about the SNC-Lavalin affair is going to make it harder for MPs in tight races to be re-elected.
