Trudeau-appointed finance minister has been plagued by scandal since taking office.
Bill Morneau, the Trudeau-appointed Liberal finance minister who presided over weak economic growth, ballooning deficits, further economic reliance on foreign nations, and was constantly beset by scandals, has resigned.
His resignation comes in the wake of a contrived ‘feud’ with Justin Trudeau, which was obviously an attempt to pin the blame on someone other than Justin Trudeau for the ongoing WE Charity Scandal.
Sources have indicated that Morneau will also resign his Toronto seat, leaving federal politics entirely.
Morneau also claims he decided to resign, and was not pushed.
Strangely, Morneau is running for chair of the OECD, with Trudeau issuing support for Morneau’s run in a statement.
Morneau officially announced his resignation in a press conference, which you can watch below:
