Jody Wilson-Raybould & Jane Philpott To Run As Independents

The two former Liberal cabinet ministers call for less partisanship and want to ‘do politics differently.’

Jody Wilson-Raybould and Jane Philpott plan to run in the upcoming federal election.

The two former Liberal cabinet ministers, who resigned on principle because of Justin Trudeau’s actions in the SNC-Lavalin PMO Scandal, and were then booted from the Liberal Party by Trudeau, announced their decision in nearly-simulataneous events.

Both Wilson-Raybould and Philpott talked about ‘doing politics differently,’ working across party lines, and reducing partisanship.

They also both noted that they were courted by the Green Party, and offered praise for Elizabeth May, while declining to join her party.

Wilson-Raybould and Philpott will face significant challenges running as independents, without the power of a political party machine behind them.

However, they both have the one thing that most independent candidates don’t have, which is name recognition, and that could significantly boost their chances.

You can watch their announcements below:

How does one react to a nothing burger story? *shrugs shoulders*
They may run, but they may get tossed. Who cares!
I hope that people who see through all the green crap, corrupt leftist crap, and fake right wing crap (Bernier) vote for a return to sense by electing a CPC majority in October!

They were very Powerful and Principled Women, but I lost ALL Respect for them when they Continued and Still Wanted to be part of a Very Corrupt Liberal Party! They had to get the boot before they were forced to leave the Liberal Party! After all the Liberal Corruption and Hatred shown by their Supposed Liberal Colleagues, Jody Wilson-Raybould and Jane Philpott did not show any Self Pride for themselves or pride for their Country! Unbelievable!

I bet a lot of Liberals wish Turdo would quit/get pushed out of the Liberal Party and run as an Independent.
