Trudeau broke law by kicking former ministers out of caucus, Philpott says

'There are consequences' for lying to Canadians: Trudeau on Scheer lawsuit threat

While Nutson said she will still vote Liberal in the next election, Philpott's ejection from caucus has killed her motivation to put long hours and energy into volunteering for the campaign again this year.

But the Liberals are pushing back, saying that at the start of this Parliament the Liberal caucus - including Philpott and Wilson-Raybould - agreed to opt out of adopting the part of the law in question.

Philpott said that because she and Wilson-Raybould were expelled, the situation is unique.

"From my understanding and from my participation... we followed the rules and procedures consistent with the legislation that was passed", said Ontario Liberal MP Adam Vaughan.

When later asked about Philpott's complaint, Trudeau acknowledged that the decision to expel the pair was his alone, but one he made after consulting caucus members: "The will of caucus was very clear, but I made the decision".

The prime minister is doubling down on his threats to sue the Conservative leader over comments he made about the SNC-Lavalin affair.

Pamplin Media Group - Oregon misfires late, as Baylor advances
During her three seasons at Oregon, Ionescu scored 1,984 career points with 792 assists and 756 rebounds. The Ducks entered the game shooting 50.5 percent on the season.

She has testified that she faced relentless pressure last fall from Trudeau, his office, the top public servant and others to override the director of public prosecutions, who had decided not to invite the Montreal engineering giant to negotiate a remediation agreement, a kind of plea bargain.

In the House of Commons, Philpott says the Parliament of Canada Act says MPs can't be kicked out of their party groups without a vote and Trudeau ejected them on his own.

"The leader of the Opposition pretends that he will not back down and he tries to make a show out of it", Government House leader Bardish Chagger told the House of Commons on Monday.

Wilson-Raybould quit the cabinet in mid-February and Philpott followed a few weeks later, saying she had lost confidence in the government over its handling of the SNC-Lavalin file.

The entire ordeal has put considerable pressure on Trudeau ahead of October's federal election, giving ammunition to political rivals and calling into question his commitment to the progressive values that helped him become a left-wing darling worldwide. Originally, it referred to Trudeau telling "lies" about not knowing about a conversation the clerk of the Privy Council, Michael Wernick, had with Wilson-Raybould on December 19. Scheer himself retweeted the statement that prompted the libel notice while his MPs repeatedly dared Trudeau to set a date for legal proceedings to begin.
