Privy Council Clerk Michael Wernick is leaving his post as Canada's top bureaucrat, saying there is "no path" for him to have a "relationship of mutual trust and respect" with opposition party leaders.
The longtime public servant was thrust into the spotlight following allegations he and members of the Prime Minister's Office tried to pressure former justice minister Jody Wilson-Raybould to sign a remediation agreement and avoid sending the Quebec engineering firm SNC-Lavalin to trial. Wernick has denied making "veiled threats" to pressure Wilson-Raybould.
In a letter to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announcing his retirement, Wernick wrote that "recent events have led me to conclude that I cannot serve as clerk of the Privy Council and secretary to cabinet during the upcoming election campaign."
