Murray Rankin Dropped as NDP Justice Critic

Murray Rankin was the NDP Justice critic (having been a law professor and an expert in environmental & public law). However with the SNC Lavalin affair still brewing, Jagmeet Singh has dropped him as NDP justice critic

He has been replaced in that critic portfolio by Tracey Ramsey who has no background in law, nor does she have a law degree.

I know Murray Rankin is not running again, but this makes no sense. You can't have the NDP spokesperson on justice issues not having a background in the law.

Anyone else agree this is a puzzling move?

Perhaps it's because he's taking care of business -  turning tricks for BC in Wet'suwet'en territory.

Since he was doing both for about a month, I don't see why he couldn't have continued to do both.
