  • Ellis weighs in on SNC Lavalin fallout

Previously, she had said her intention was to remain in caucus and continue to serve as the representative for Vancouver Granville.

The pressure began right at the top, Wilson-Raybould said, starting with Trudeau, his top adviser Gerald Butts and the country's most senior bureaucrat Michael Wernick.

Jody Wilson-Raybould, the former justice minister and attorney general, testified before a Commons justice committee last week that she was pressured last fall by the PMO to negotiate a deferred prosecution agreement with the engineering firm SNC-Lavalin instead of pursuing a criminal prosecution.

She said partisan concerns were repeatedly raised in connection with the SNC-Lavalin case, including by Trudeau, who she claims pointed out to her in a September conversation that he was himself a Quebec MP and raised the political consequences of prosecuting a large Montreal-based company during the then-ongoing Quebec election.

Various officials "hounded" her through phone calls, meetings and text messages, warning of consequences and issuing "veiled threats" if a DPA was not made available to the company, she said, reports CBC News. Trudeau said that he "strongly disagrees" with her characterization of events and added that his office has always acted professionally.

Like Wilson-Raybould before him, MacAulay said he didn't see the move to Veterans Affairs as a demotion.

On CTV's Question Period, Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale said that repairing the relationship between Trudeau and Wilson-Raybould will "take an very bad lot of hard work".

Wilson's remark has prompted the leader of the opposition Conservatice Party to demand Prime Minister's resignation.

However, she opined that, when she had not budged her position, she was shunted to another office, as veteran affairs minister. She told the Vancouver Sun earlier that she had been confirmed as the Liberal candidate in that riding a year ago.
