"It's a huge privilege - I come from a rural riding, a dairy riding, in fact, in the south of Quebec, so I'm very close to the producers in Quebec", she said outside Rideau Hall after being sworn in as the first female federal agriculture minister.

Trudeau moved long-serving Agriculture Minister Lawrence MacAulay to the veterans affairs portfolio to replace Jody Wilson-Raybould, who quit on February 12 after less than a month in the job.

Women's Minister Maryam Monsef took on the worldwide development portfolio in addition to her current job. "She was confirmed as the Liberal Party of Canada candidate for Vancouver Granville past year".

Like Wilson-Raybould before him, MacAulay said he didn't see the move to Veterans Affairs as a demotion.

Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau on Thursday, midst mounting pressure from the opposition to leave his designated position won the public support of a top political ally.

"No, no, no, we just need to find a solution", was Trudeau's response, according to Wilson-Raybould.

"Given the subsequent chain of events that include portions of conversations that reference enormous pressure and political interference and the subsequent removal of the former attorney general and justice minister from the position. there is reason to believe that pressure and interference did occur", the letter says. But earlier this month, she had resigned from Trudeau's cabinet; so has the latter's close confidant, Gerry Butts.

She will not say if she has lost confidence in the prime minister, but sometimes silence says it all.
