Tory leader Scheer calls for Morneau to resign finance post
OTTAWA –Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer is calling for Finance Minister Bill Morneau to resign his cabinet post.
“Bill Morneau has betrayed the trust of Canadians over and over,” Scheer told reporters in the House of Commons foyer on Wednesday.
The call for Morneau to step down comes amid continuing and contentious attacks from the opposition over his personal finances and alleged breach of federal ethics law.
“This is the finance minister who refused to answer simple questions about his assets and who controlled them,” Scheer said.
If Morneau won’t step down, Trudeau should remove him, said Scheer.
