Wilson-Raybould might have lost justice post because she doesn’t speak French

Liberal MP says Wilson-Raybould might have lost justice post because she doesn’t speak French

Anthony Housefather, the Liberal MP who will chair hearings into the Jody Wilson-Raybould affair, told a Montreal radio station today that Ms. Wilson-Raybould might have been moved out of the roles of attorney general and justice minister because she does not speak French. As Steven Chase reports this afternoon, Mr. Housefather was addressing allegations that Ms. Wilson-Raybould was moved out of the justice portfolio over her refusal to shelve a prosecution against Montreal construction giant SNC-Lavalin. He said Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has the right to choose who is in what cabinet post and there could be several reasons why people are shuffled. “For example ... there’s a lot of legal issues coming up in Quebec and the Prime Minister may well have decided he needed a justice minister that could speak French,” Mr. Housefather said.

Meanwhile, also out of The Globe’s Ottawa bureau, Bill Curry reports that eight Indigenous senators have released a joint letter of support for Jody Wilson-Raybould following her resignation. Six of the eight senators were appointed by Mr. Trudeau, who reiterated yesterday that he was “puzzled” as to why Ms. Wilson-Raybould resigned from cabinet.

Also on the file today, columnist Elizabeth Renzetti wonders what happened to our “feminist” Prime Minister, writing that the Trudeau government, “which branded itself as women’s champions ... made a colossal error in hanging out to dry the first Indigenous woman to be named justice minister.”

This story continues to develop. For all of the background and context you’ll need to understand the myriad threads, read our explainer: SNC-Lavalin, Jody Wilson-Raybould and Trudeau’s PMO: The story so far. It lays out why SNC-Lavalin is facing prosecution, what happened to Ms. Wilson-Raybould and what the reaction has been so far.
