Whitby, Ont. MP Celina Caesar-Chavannes has quit the Liberal caucus and will sit as an independent, prompting Conservative attacks calling Prime Minister Justin Trudeau a “fake feminist.”

Trudeau announced her decision after the weekly caucus meeting.

“I have just been notified by my office that Celina Caesar-Chavannes has decided to sit as an independent. I want to thank her for her service to the Liberal Party and to her constituents, and wish her the best in her continued service to her constituents,” he said.

Caesar-Chavannes, who had announced already that she will not run in the October election, attended today’s Liberal caucus meeting.
