Most of Jane Philpott’s Liberal riding association leadership quits over Trudeau’s antics

Most board members of the federal Liberal riding association for Markham-Stouffville — represented by Jane Philpott — have stepped down in solidarity with the well-liked former cabinet minister because they “have no longer got the heart,” CBC News has learned.

In an exclusive interview, the board’s secretary, Leea Nutson, said 10 of its 16 members have tendered their resignations. With the upcoming fall federal election, Nutson said, two are staying on in the interim. Three others will continue serving the riding association, and one member’s intentions are unknown.
