Regina NDP MP Erin Weir has been temporarily suspended from his duties after allegations of harassment.
Federal NDP leader Jagmeet Singh made the announcement this afternoon saying the allegation is one he is taking seriously and one that is troubling. Singh adds Weir will remain a member of caucus while an independent investigator looks into the matter. The allegation involves "harassing behaviour" towards a female party-member. Weir captured the seat in Regina-Lewvan after a tightly contested race in the 2015 federal election. [ckrm feb 2 2018]
