Former Liberal minister says it’s time for Trudeau to go

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s former environment minister Catherine McKenna says it’s time for the party to find a new leader, after the Liberals suffered a stunning defeat this week in a former Toronto stronghold.

“The Liberal party isn’t about one person. It’s about the values it stands for and it’s about improving the lives of Canadians,” McKenna said in a statement to Global News Friday.

“The Prime Minister has a legacy to be proud of but it’s time for new ideas, new energy and a new leader. There is too much at stake in this election especially on the economy and climate.”

McKenna was a high-profile minister who served in Trudeau’s cabinet from 2015 to 2021, first in charge of the environment file, and later responsible for the infrastructure portfolio.

While Trudeau’s current ministers are standing by him publicly, McKenna is one of the first former cabinet members to call for his replacement, as first reported by CBC News.

Her comments come as Trudeau faces growing pressure to rethink his political future after the surprise upset in the riding of Toronto-St. Paul’s.

The Conservatives won Monday night’s byelection, taking the seat from the Liberals for the first time in three decades, and setting off a wave of questions about whether Trudeau should stay on as leader.
