Trudeau rules out probe on Liberal candidate despite demands for harassment inquiry


Justin Trudeau faced fresh demands for an independent inquiry into allegations that a Liberal candidate harassed a female staff member on Friday. At a news conference, the Liberal leader ruled out a further probe into the conduct of Raj Saini, saying that there were already “strong, rigorous, independent processes in place.’ Saini, a Liberal candidate in Ontario, has faced complaints that he harassed a former member of his staff, allegations which he firmly denies. The allegations, reported by CBC, have not been independently verified by the Canadian Press. The Liberals have come under pressure from the Conservatives and NDP over their decision to allow Saini to run for a third time for office.
