An editorial by Mel Rothenburger.
NO MATTER WHAT YOUR POLITICS, you’ve got to be pleased Justin Trudeau booted Jody Wilson-Raybould out of the Liberal caucus.
If you’re a Liberal supporter, you’re happy the person who has been doing so much damage to the party and the prime minister is gone.
If you’re a Conservative or New Democrat, you’re happy to get more mileage out of this never-ending drama.
It’s a win-win.
But, really, what else could Trudeau do after Wilson-Raybould released an audio tape of a phone conversation she had with then-Clerk of the Privy Council Michael Wernick. Though it revealed little new, the tape demonstrated a stupendous lack of propriety on Wilson-Raybould’s part.
How could she possibly think she could remain in the Liberal caucus after a stunt like that?
