Trudeau has had multiple opportunities to say that Jody Wilson-Raybould won’t be kicked out. Every time, he says he’s ‘considering’ the situation.
Jody Wilson-Raybould says she’s running as a Liberal. She told CBC, “I have been confirmed as the LPC candidate candidate for Vancouver Granville for the federal election 2019.”
Yet, it seems Justin Trudeau is still considering the possibility of kicking her out of the Liberal Caucus.
Trudeau was asked again about that possibility today.
His response was “this is obviously not a situation or a decision to be taken lightly and we will continue to reflect and work on this issue.”
This is at least the third time Trudeau has been asked whether Wilson-Raybould would be allowed to run, and each time he has refused to rule out booting her from the party.
It confirms once again that for Trudeau, serving the elites is the only thing that matters. Jody Wilson-Raybould refused to bow to the pressure from Trudeau to do SNC-Lavalin’s bidding, and may end up paying a huge political price for it.
But it seems the heavier price will be paid by Trudeau. His image as a ‘woke’ and ‘different’ leader is shattered, and kicking Jody Wilson-Raybould out of the Liberal Party would backfire on him massively.
