Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould had previously indirectly held controlled assets without a blind trust but sold them in April last year.
Last week, Morneau committed to selling the $21-million worth of shares he holds in his former company after accusations he’s personally profited from changes he’s made as minister.
The Toronto Centre MP said he’d donate to charity the profits earned on shares since he was elected as well as promising to put the rest in a blind trust.
