Wilson-Raybould always wants to be a candidate under the banner of the liberal

Wilson-Raybould veut toujours être candidate sous la bannière libérale

OTTAWA — The former Justice minister Jody Wilson-Raybould, it was always the intention to present themselves under the banner of the liberal in the next election in the month of October in the riding of Vancouver Granville.

Ms. Wilson-Raybould testified last Wednesday before a committee of the House of commons to denounce the “improper pressures” that she is said to have suffered on the part of the office of the prime minister in the case of SNC-Lavalin. This controversy has put the liberal government in the lurch and has even encouraged the conservative opposition to claim the head of the prime minister Justin Trudeau.

Despite everything, the former minister seems determined to remain in the liberal caucus.

Assistant to Ms. Wilson-Raybould said Sunday in an email that the former minister remained a liberal mp for the riding of British Columbia. She recalled that the mp had been confirmed as the liberal candidate during his inauguration a year ago.

Ms. Wilson-Raybould has always the support of his constituency association.

Two days after his testimony, the liberal association of Vancouver Granville said on Facebook that she was giving his “total support” to the mp for his “important work for the community, the region and Canada”.

Prime minister Trudeau has said this week that he is thinking, always to know if it will keep Ms. Wilson-Raybould in their ranks.

“I was made aware of his testimony, there are still reflections to be compared to his status within the caucus,” he said on Thursday.
