The Prime Minister should quit saying that, Mr. Speaker.
The former minister of finance did not submit a letter of resignation. He refused to sign a joint letter drafted by the Prime Minister. The Prime Minister said: “We mutually agreed he was to leave”, yet the former minister of finance said he learned about the cabinet shuffle on the radio.
Why does the Prime Minister not just admit that he fired the former minister of finance and tell this House of Commons and the Canadian public why?
