    Liberal MP Scott Brison leaving politics, Trudeau to shuffle cabinet


    Veteran cabinet minister Scott Brison is resigning from cabinet and will not be running in this year’s federal election, Bill Curry writes.


    In a video message alongside his husband, Maxime St. Pierre, and twin daughters, Claire and Rose, Mr. Brison said he is ready for new challenges and wants to spend more time with his young family.


    Mr. Brison is stepping down as president of the Treasury Board. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will shuffle the cabinet Monday to deal with the resignation, he said at a news conference.

    Trudeau is probably now removed from the Saudi Royal Family Christmas gift list.

    Saudi woman fleeing family flies to Canada after gaining asylum

    The Canadian prime minister, Justin Trudeau, confirmed his country had granted her asylum. “That is something that we are pleased to do because Canada is a country that understands how important it is to stand up for human rights and to stand up for women’s rights around the world and I can confirm that we have accepted the UN’s request,” Trudeau said.

    Several other countries, including Australia, had been in talks with the UN’s refugee agency to accept Qunun, Surachate said earlier in the day. “She chose Canada. It’s her personal decision,” he said.

    The decision is likely to exacerbate Canada’s already poor relations with Saudi Arabia, which last year barred the Canadian ambassador to Riyadh after Ottawa criticised Saudi authorities for detaining women’s activists.
