Justin Trudeau has appointed two new staffers to the Prime Minister’s Office to fill the gap left by the resignation of his former Principal Secretary Gerald Butts.
Ben Chin will be moving from his position as the Finance Minister’s chief of staff into a senior adviser position with the Prime Minister. Alongside Chin, Sarah Goodman was appointed as the director of policy.
Although he won’t be occupying the principal secretary position, Chin, like his predecessor Butts was mentioned as one of the pressuring actors in the revealing testimony of former Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould.
According to Wilson-Raybould, Chin was the first to apply pressure on her office to intervene on behalf of SNC-Lavalin.
