(SNC-Lavalin-Philpott) (Audio: P04)

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is being accused of breaking Parliamentary rules when he ejected former cabinet ministers Jane Philpott and Jody Wilson-Raybould from the Liberal caucus.

Speaking in the House of Commons, Philpott says if Trudeau had followed the rules, it would have taken 90 Liberal M-Ps to vote to kick her and Wilson-Raybould out.

But she says he unilaterally decided to remove them out without a vote and before an emergency caucus meeting last week.

Wilson-Raybould and Philpott resigned from cabinet over the way the S-N-C-Lavalin controversy has been handled, and Trudeau announced after that caucus meeting that their expulsion was the result of broken trust between them and the rest of the party. (10)
