Opposition and Conservative Party Leader and Andrew Scheer called Prime Minister Justin Trudeau “disgraced” and encouraged cabinet members to quit after a high-profile resignation on Monday, saying that any ministers who remain will show the Liberal Party is consumed with “ethical rot”.

Scheer said last week Wilson-Raybould “lifted the veil” on the government’s “corruption”, an affair the leader said “has engulfed his government and called into question and undermined the very rule of law our democracy depends on.”

The Conservative leader encouraged Liberal cabinet members to think on Jane Philpott’s resignation and “stand up and be heard”, saying that they will be a part of the “ethical rot” of the Trudeau administration if they do not.

“Their motivations were purely political” and not jobs, Scheer said in response to a reporter’s question about the SNC-Lavalin affair.

Scheer reiterated that Trudeau should resign and but answered “no” to a question about whether he would ask for an early election. He did, however, call on Trudeau to resume currently on-break parliament and answer questions in the House of Commons.
