Trudeau and other party leaders also offered brief remarks following Scheer’s resignation announcement. “I know thoughts first and foremost are for family. I want to salute Jill [Scheer] and recognize his kids, who I know better than most, have made significant sacrifices to see their father take on a leadership position,” Trudeau said.
“I very much wish him all the very, very best in his next and exciting steps whatever they may be. Be they here in the house or beyond. I want to thank him deeply for his service to Canada on behalf of all Canadians.”
