Petty politics or white privilege? Jody Wilson-Raybould's office spat could get messy - 2019-12-13
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.
