Jody Wilson-Raybould (born 23 March 1971) is a Canadian politician and the Liberal Member of Parliament for Vancouver Granville. She served as Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada in the cabinet of Justin Trudeau from 2015 until January 2019 and then as Minister of Veterans Affairs from 14 January 2019, until resigning on 12 February 2019.[1]

Crown Prosecutor

Before entering Canadian federal politics, she was a Crown Prosecutor for British Columbia, a Treaty Commissioner and Regional Chief of the B.C. Assembly of First Nations. Wilson-Raybould studied at the University of Victoria and later at the University of British Columbia.[2]

Meng Wangzhou

On 14 January 2019, Vancouver Granville MP Jody Wilson-Raybould was appointed Minister of Veterans Affairs and Associate Minister of National Defence.

She was previously the Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada.

Wilson-Raybould was replaced by David Lametti, a Montreal-area MP who was Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development.

The transfer of Wilson-Raybould comes as a court hearing is underway concerning the extradition of Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou to the United States.

Ultimately, the Attorney General will make the decision on whether Meng should be sent to the United States if the extradition request is upheld in court.[3]
