While Andrew Scheer's surprise resignation consumed much of the oxygen on the Hill on Thursday, one totally unrelated story managed to punch through the wall-to-wall Conservative leadership coverage.

It was the revelation, courtesy of CBC News, that Wilson-Raybould was refusing to leave the large suite of offices she had been assigned when she had a bigger job and title.

Rank matters when it comes to Parliament Hill real estate — offices are allocated on the basis of which party holds the most seats and which MPs hold the most significant positions within their parties.

Wilson-Raybould, as an Independent, is now at the bottom of the pecking order for office space and is not pleased that this means a downgrade in her working conditions.
