In a statement shared in English with the media, the MP states that the intention behind [his] recent comments was not to personally request a leadership review and that he is not requesting [a leadership review] at this time.
As I said, I think the Prime Minister is a smart politician, a good candidate, and I know he always has the best interests of Canadians at heart.

I will continue to support my caucus colleagues and the Prime Minister as I have done since 2015, says the MP in conclusion.

For Mona Fortier, MP for Ottawa-Vanier, there is no reason to contest Justin Trudeau's leadership.
For me, at this moment, it's up to the boss to decide whether he wants to continue or not, it's not my decision. I have a boss, I'm going to work with him, I'm going to roll up my sleeves.
For the MP for the Northwest Territories, Michael V. McLoed, the reality should be a little more nuanced.
Should there be a leadership review? Maybe we should have a discussion about this, a review after each election.
