Bob Layton: I believe Jody Wilson-Raybould

During Jody Wilson-Raybould's testimony this is the exact line that the Clerk of the Privy Council, Michael Wernick used during one of his meetings with the former Justice Minister.

The pressure, she said, began in September and was sustained until December.

"It's a huge privilege - I come from a rural riding, a dairy riding, in fact, in the south of Quebec, so I'm very close to the producers in Quebec", she said outside Rideau Hall after being sworn in as the first female federal agriculture minister.

Maryam Monsef - the minister for women and gender equality who made global headlines in 2016 when it was revealed that she was born in Iran and was not Canada's first Afghan-born MP as the Liberals touted when she was elected to the House of Commons the year before - also had the worldwide development portfolio added to her responsibilities. "She was confirmed as the Liberal Party of Canada candidate for Vancouver Granville previous year".

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau shuffled his cabinet on Friday after Jody Wilson-Raybould resigned from Veteran's Affairs last month.

Like Wilson-Raybould before him, MacAulay said he didn't see the move to Veterans Affairs as a demotion.

Wilson-Raybould testified on Wednesday that when she was justice minister previous year, officials in the Liberal government leaned on her to help construction firm SNC-Lavalin Group Inc avoid a corruption trial. And she said she believes she was shuffled out of the prestigious justice post because she refused.

The prime minister faced a barrage of questions in various public appearances outside of Ottawa on Wilson-Raybould's allegations.

"No, no, no, we just need to find a solution", was Trudeau's response, according to Wilson-Raybould. That follows a letter Scheer sent Lucki on Thursday, asking her to initiate an investigation.

The website says individuals who are registered to lobby the Prime Minister's Office and Ministry of Agriculture and Agri-Food are not permitted to attend the fundraising event.
