“Sending the wrong message”: NDP calls on Premier to remove MLA charged with assault from caucus

The NDP is calling for Premier Moe to show leadership and remove MLA Nadine Wilson from caucus following a statement from the Premier indicating that she has been charged with assault.

“When an MLA is facing serious criminal charges, it’s only reasonable that they resign from caucus until the matter is resolved,” Meili said. “By failing to enforce that standard, the Premier is sending the wrong message about how seriously he takes this charge and the issue of elder abuse.”

“Any MLA who is charged with a crime should be removed from caucus until it has been resolved,” NDP Justice Critic Nicole Sarauer tweeted shortly after the news broke. “The Premier needs to show leadership: Ms. Wilson can not represent the govt while this is ongoing.”
