Independent MHA, Dale Kirby, calls the Commissioner of Legislative Standards’ reports on allegations of harassment against him by two fellow MHAs “a lot of money to pay out because MHAs don’t like each other.”
The former Liberal cabinet minister publicly released two reports yesterday into allegations made against him by Colin Holloway and Pam Parsons.
Commissioner Bruce Chaulk cleared Kirby of all allegations made against him by Colin Holloway and cleared him of seven of eight allegations made by Pam Parsons.
The Commissioner recommended that Kirby be reprimanded for comments Chaulk deemed to be inappropriate. Kirby is seeking clarification on that finding.
In the meantime, Kirby says he’d be happy to return to the Liberal caucus, but is unsure if he’ll be welcomed back. He has signaled his desire to return, but hasn’t spoken with the Premier yet.
Meanwhile, the House of Assembly will reconvene Tuesday to consider Chaulk’s reports on the Code of Conduct for members.
Speaker of the House, Perry Trimper, announced the opening yesterday.
