Liberal ‘Dictator’ Trudeau Expels Own Party Members Over Whistleblowing

Canadian Prime Minister and Liberal sweetheart Justin Trudeau has reacted to allegations by his own party members of him blocking an investigation into an engineering firm by …. kicking them both out of his own party.

Although both Ms Jody Wilson-Raybould and Ms Jane Philpott had already resigned from his cabinet citing their concerns over the SNC-Lavalin affair, they have now both been expelled from Mr Trudeau’s Liberal Party, six months before a general election in October.

As the SNC-Lavalin controversy has cast a shadow over Mr Trudeau’s leadership, the Conservative opposition party is now in the lead.

Mr Andrew Scheer, leader of the opposition Conservatives, claimed that the prime minister was stopping justice by removing the two corruption whistleblowers. In a tweet, he stated that ‘if you tell the truth, there is no place for you in the Canadian Liberal Party.’

“If they can’t honestly say they have confidence in this team… then they cannot be part of this team.”
