Regina MP Erin Weir has been temporarily suspended from some of his duties after being accused of harassment.
Federal NDP leader Jagmeet Singh announced Thursday the party has received an email with allegations against the Regina-Lewvan MP.
No details were given regarding the harassment, just that the behaviour was aimed at members of the party.
Singh said Weir would be temporarily suspended from his duties as a critic but he is not suspended from caucus while the investigation into the claims takes place.
Erin Weir released a statement to 980 CJME Thursday afternoon.
“As politicians, we are placed in a position of public trust. We are, and should be, held to the highest possible standards and it is absolutely right that our party has a process to investigate any allegations of harassment.
However, I do not know what is being alleged. I am confident that I have not harassed anyone and welcome a prompt investigation to clear my name. I look forward to continuing to represent the people of Regina–Lewvan as a member of the NDP caucus.”
Weir was first elected in 2015.
