In blow to Canadian PM Trudeau, second minister quits over scandal

OTTAWA – In a serious blow to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, a second member of his Cabinet resigned on Monday (March 4), saying she had “lost confidence” in how the government had dealt with an escalating political scandal.

Jane Philpott, a key member of Trudeau’s Cabinet, said she was quitting over the government’s response to allegations that officials inappropriately pressured former justice minister Jody Wilson-Raybould to help major construction company SNC-Lavalin Group Inc avoid being tried for corruption.
