Philpott stated that she was very unhappy with the way in which the government responded to the allegations that officials inappropriately pressured the then justice minister Jody Wilson-Raybould in 2018 to assist a major construction company ‘SNC-Lavalin Group Inc’ steer clear of a corruption trial.

Philpott had this to say in her statement, “Sadly, I have lost confidence in how the government has dealt with this matter and in how it has responded to the issues raised, I have concluded that I must resign as a member of cabinet.”

The former Treasury President and former Justice Minister are very close friends, the former justice minister, Wilson-Raybould was the first to resign after she was surprisingly demoted in January. Wilson-Raybould is convinced that her refusal to assist SNC-Lavalin was the reason for her demotion.
