"Mr. Trudeau's ethical lapses and his disastrous handling of this latest scandal have thrown his government into chaos", Conservative leader Andrew Scheer said in a statement.
Wilson-Raybould says a lot of thank-yous but at no point does she actually explain why she is resigning.
Her refusal to deny the allegation has fuelled the controversy, triggered by a Globe and Mail report that the Prime Minister's Office leaned heavily on Wilson-Raybould to instruct the director of public prosecutions to drop criminal proceedings against SNC-Lavalin and pursue a negotiated remediation agreement instead.
I look forward to continuing to serve as the Member of Parliament for Vancouver-Granville. Trudeau said on Monday that he had full confidence in her and that her presence in cabinet spoke for itself.

Saskatchewan's only Liberal MP Ralph Goodale was in the hot seat Tuesday in Regina as he was grilled by reporters about former justice minister Jody Wilson-Raybould's cabinet resignation and the state of the public's trust in the government and the Canadian judicial system.

Trudeau's comments came shortly after federal ethics commissioner Mario Dion confirmed he has launched an investigation into the allegation the PMO improperly tried to help SNC-Lavalin avoid criminal prosecution.
In a hint that the situation could grow more complicated for Trudeau, Wilson-Raybould has retained former Supreme Court Justice Thomas Cromwell to advise her on how much she can say about the SNC-Lavalin case.

The Tories and New Democrats want nine high-ranking officials - including members of Trudeau's inner circle and the new justice minister, David Lametti - to testify before the committee. By contrast, Brison's resignation letter glowingly mentions Trudeau seven times.
Her resignation could trigger another cabinet shuffle and is likely to cast a long shadow over the upcoming election campaign.

Perry Bellegarde, national chief of the Assembly of First Nations, said in a statement that he was "saddened" by Wilson-Raybould's departure, noting that many First Nations people celebrated her appointment to the justice portfolio as a "testament to her expertise, experience and intellect".
