Program Title: Bill Morneau steps down as Canada’s Finance Minister
Description: On Monday evening, Canada’s Finance Minister Bill Morneau resigned his cabinet position and his seat as MP for Toronto Centre, saying “Since I'm not running again, and since I expect that we will have a long and challenging recovery, I think it's important that the Prime Minister has by his side a finance minister who has that longer term vision.”

But the WE scandal and days of speculation about a deepening rift between Morneau and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, were there other issues at play? Today on Front Burner, CBC Power & Politics host Vassy Kapelos on what might have led to the resignation, and what its implications could be.
