Summary

“She does not want to resign but she has to, given the moral space between her and the government.”Philpott, 58, was widely regarded as one of the most respected and competent ministers in Trudeau's government.A physician by trade, she previously served as minister of health and minister of indigenous services.Philpott said the alleged efforts by politicians and officials to pressure Wilson-Raybould had raised serious concerns and she quit in solidarity with her.Lori Williams, an associate professor in the Department of Economics, Justice and Policy Studies at Mount Royal University in Calgary, said Philpott's "principled resignation" was a "significant blow" for Trudeau."She was one of the government’s most effective advocates, and she resigned because she no longer felt she could defend all her government has done," Williams said.Daniel Beland, a political science professor and director of McGill Institute for the Study of Canada in Montreal, said Philpott's decision hit Trudeau "especially hard" because her resignation letter was a "strong rebuttal of the prime minister."Trudeau, the self-proclaimed feminist, had promised accountability in politics and a gender-balanced Cabinet when he took power in 2015.“Two influential and well-regarded women have now left the Cabinet in the name of broad principles such as the rule of law," Beland added.
