Wernick was widely condemned by the Opposition parties as being biased and partisan.
Michael Wernick, whose unhinged testimony to the Justice Committee (including rants about assassinations) introduced him to Canadians in a terribly unflattering light, is going to resign.
Wernick – who as Canada’s most powerful public servant would have had a key role overseeing the next election – faced numerous calls to step down from the Opposition parties.
In a letter to Justin Trudeau, Wernick said, “It is now apparent that there is no path for me to have a relationship of mutual trust and respect with the leaders of the opposition parties. I wish to relinquish these roles before the election. It is essential that Canadians continue to see their world leading public service as non-partisan and there to provide excellent services to Canadians and the governments they elect.”
This only adds to the scandal, as the chaos in the Trudeau government continues.
Remember, at the beginning of the scandal the Liberals said the whole thing was ‘false,’ now there have been numerous resignations, and Trudeau’s poll numbers have tanked.
Wernick isn’t out of the woods yet, as he could still face questions about this scandal, and about the Vice Admiral Norman trial.
