Trudeau: Crisis deepens as second minister quits

(CNN)A second high-profile minister has resigned from the cabinet of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, amid a corruption scandal that threatens to destabilize his government ahead of this year’s national election.

Jane Philpott, who had held several portfolios in Trudeau’s cabinet before becoming treasury board president, announced her decision to leave Monday.
In a tweet she said had lost confidence in the government’s handling of an inquiry into allegations that officials linked to Trudeau had pressured a former minister to help Quebec-based construction company SNC-Lavalin avoid criminal prosecution.
