Jody Wilson-Raybould resigns from cabinet

Veterans Affairs Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould is quitting the federal cabinet. Her resignation comes days after allegations became public the Prime Minister's Office pressured the former justice minister to help SNC-Lavalin avoid criminal prosecution. Since a report about the allegations was published, Trudeau has denied he did any such thing. In a letter published on her website Wilson-Raybould does not say exactly why she's quitting. It does say she will continue to serve as MP for the riding of Vancouver-Granville. Trudeau's office says Wilson-Raybould told the prime minister Monday night of her intention to resign from cabinet. Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan will take over the veterans affairs portfolio temporarily.
