Grewal still in Liberal caucus a week after saying he’d resign over gambling addiction

‘It is simply not believable that no one in this government was made aware of this serious investigation’

Despite informing the Prime Minister’s Office last week that he was resigning as an MP to deal with a gambling addiction, MP Raj Grewal remains a member of both the Liberal caucus and the House of Commons.

The news comes despite opposition demands for clarification on when the PMO was informed Grewal had come to the attention of the RCMP and the OPP.

“When we met he said he was resigning as a Member of Parliament. It was my understanding that that was going to be imminent and I suspect that that is something that he will be doing in the very short term,” said Mark Holland, the chief government whip.

The Brampton East MP announced on Thursday of last week that he was stepping down immediately, citing “personal and medical reasons.” The following day, the PMO released a statement saying that the resignation was related to a gambling addiction.
