Kitco News

OTTAWA (Reuters) - Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Thursday said he was still puzzled by the decision of former veterans affairs minister Jody Wilson-Raybould to quit last week, even though she addressed cabinet on Tuesday.

Trudeau, speaking to reporters in Atlantic Canada, did not answer directly when asked about a newspaper report alleging Wilson-Raybould told cabinet she had come under improper pressure from his officials in a high-profile corporate case last year when she was justice minister.
