Wilson-Raybould tells constituents she s sticking with Liberals for 2019 vote
Politics
The former justice minister and attorney general quit Prime Minister Justin Trudeau s cabinet last month and has testified that he and his staff inappropriately pressured her to help engineering firm SNC-Lavalin avoid a criminal trial on corruption charges.

In an open letter posted to her website today, she says important questions haven t been answered about the affair and Canadian politics still has a "culture of conflict, empty partisanship and cynical games."

The letter also says she has support from people across the country who want to change that, which is why she is staying in politics and in the Liberal party.

Trudeau has said he needs more time to think about whether he will move to expel Wilson-Raybould from caucus, or bar her from running for the party.

Wilson-Raybould was first elected in Vancouver-Granville in 2015 and has already been nominated to carry the Liberal banner in October s election.
