Even though his staffer quickly jumped into action to make sure The Rebel wasn’t able to ask Hehr any questions, I managed to ask him if he thought Wilson-Raybould told the truth in her testimony.
His answer was surprising.
What was even more surprising was that even though his staffer pleaded for me to not ask his boss any questions, Kent Hehr told me he is proud to be a Liberal member with Jody Wilson-Raybould.
Statements like this are similar to those made by Dr. Jane Philpott, the former President of the Treasury Board, who stepped down from the Trudeau Cabinet to side with Wilson-Raybould.
Perhaps Kent has looked at his personal electability in October, and like Philpott, decided distancing himself from Trudeau is the best path forward.
As the sole Liberal MP in Calgary, maybe Hehr has finally realized that Trudeau will be more of a hindrance than a help when election day rolls around.
