Number of former federal Liberal ministers, ex-B.C. premier call for Trudeau to resign

After stunning byelection defeat, a number of former Liberal ministers are calling for Justin Trudeau to resign

A number of former ministers who served in Justin Trudeau’s government are calling for his resignation, along with former B.C. premier Christy Clark, following the Liberals Toronto—St. Paul’s byelection defeat.

Conservative candidate Don Stewart defeated Leslie Church earlier this week after the Liberals had held control of the riding for more than 30 years.

In the aftermath, Trudeau said he heard the “concerns and frustrations” of voters.

“These are not easy times, and it is clear I, and my entire Liberal team, have much more work to do to deliver tangible, real progress that Canadians can see and feel,” Trudeau said at a press conference in British Columbia on Tuesday.

“We’ll never stop working and fighting to make sure people have what they need to get through these tough times. My focus is on your success, and that’s where it’s going to stay.”

Whether Trudeau should stay, however, is a different matter within his own party.
