Jody Wilson-Raybould is been turfed from the Liberal caucus.
Jody Wilson-Raybould says she's been told by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau that she is no longer a member of the Liberal caucus and will not be permitted to run under the party's banner in the fall election.
"I have just been informed by the prime minister of Canada that I am removed from the Liberal caucus and as the confirmed Vancouver Granville candidate for the Liberal Party of Canada in the 2019 federal election," Wilson-Raybould tweeted.
Trudeau is expected tonight to address the Liberal national caucus, which is holding a special meeting.
Today, Wilson-Raybould wrote a two-page letter to the national caucus, acknowledging many of them are "angry, hurt and frustrated."
"And frankly so am I, and I can only speak for myself," Wilson-Raybould writes. "I am angry, hurt and frustrated because I feel and believe I was upholding the values that we all committed to. In giving the advice I did, and taking the steps I did, I was trying to help protect the prime minister and the government from a horrible mess."
She also defended her actions on the SNC-Lavalin file.
