Because it’s 2019

Good on her. She’s got guts and integrity to spare.

We haven’t heard the last from Celina.

Whitby, Ont. MP Celina Caesar-Chavannes has quit the Liberal caucus and will sit as an independent.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced the decision after the weekly caucus meeting.

“I have just been notified by my office that Celina Caesar-Chavannes has decided to sit as an independent. I want to thank her for her service to the Liberal Party and to her constituents, and wish her the best in her continued service to her constituents,” he said.

Caesar-Chavannes already had announced she will not seek re-election in the October election.

She told the Globe and Mail that when she first told Trudeau about her plan not to run, he became hostile towards her.

“He was yelling. He was yelling that I didn’t appreciate him, that he’d given me so much,” Caesar-Chavannes told the newspaper.

The Prime Minister’s Office insisted that Trudeau displayed “absolutely no hostility” in the exchange.

    I think she was asked to leave.

    This difference of opinion can be summed up with what is now part of PM Trudeau’s daily lexicon “I do not feel that I acted inappropriately in any way. But I respect the fact that someone else might have experienced that differently.”

    Sigh.

    Wow. How could he not see that one coming (and take steps to prevent it), I wonder?

    If Trudeau doesn’t take immediate and effective action to stem this bleeding, it will become a torrent that washes away any hope of reelection he might still hold.

    Can you imagine the absolute shock of seeing the beast inside Trudeau, surface and aggressively diminish you.
    ? This is clearly a case of abuse. Celina simply wanted to inform him of her intention not to run in the 2019 election. But simply informing someone with a psychological profile such as Trudeau, comes with a price. And she’s not the First Lady to be psychogically abused by Prince Charming.

      Sean: Justin is very much like his old man…not a nice person could be very spiteful and just out and out nasty. Ask Margaret Trudeau she got the brunt of his attacks jealousy maybe, she was smart and got out!! And that is what Celina is doing. Just a thought!!

    According to Freeland, Celina expressed “her” truth based on
    “her” experiences. Now how about we shine some sunshine on the middle class. Unlike Harper, blah, blah, blaah…. and thanks for The Justiin Committee and all their hard work. Nothing to see here. Move along. Look over there at the PCs playin’ politics!
