Liberal MP Steps Down From Parliamentary Secretary Role After Travelling To US For Funeral
Liberal MP Kamal Khera is stepping down from her role as Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of International Development. Khera’s stepping down mirrors what happened with NDP Niki Ashton, who is in Greece visiting her sick grandmother. NDP leader Jagmeet Singh removed Ashton from her critic roles following the news. By contrast, the Conservatives have so far been silent on Ron Liepert, a Conservative MP who travelled to California for what he called “essential home maintenance.” Also, with now at least six Alberta UCP MLAs having travelled outside the country, Jason Kenney has refused to take action against them.
