April 2, 2019

Jody Wilson-Raybould and Jane Philpott have been removed from the Liberal Party. Wilson-Raybould said she was notified by PM Justin Trudeau via Twitter on Tuesday evening.

"The trust that previously existed between these two individuals and our team has been broken," Trudeau said. "This has been a difficult few weeks for our government and for our Liberal team," he continued. Trudeau said Wilson-Raybould's secret recording of a phone call with Clerk of the Privy Council, Michael Wernick, was "unconscionable." Trudeau's remarks were greeted with a loud applause and a standing ovation from caucus.
