Conway seeks answers on Harrison gun allegations

REGINA - Today, Official Opposition Ethics and Democracy Critic Meara Conway wrote to the Sergeant-at-Arms, Chief Firearms Officer, and the Legislative District Security Unit seeking answers to the unanswered questions surrounding the Speaker’s allegation that Premier Scott Moe’s House Leader brought a gun into the Legislative Building.

“There are so many unanswered questions about what the Speaker shared on the last day of the sitting. Jeremy Harrison could clear the air by facing the media, but instead he’s hiding from reporters. We’re trying to get the information Saskatchewan people are looking for,” said Conway. 

“A lot of people are rightly concerned that Premier Moe’s most trusted officials may have been more focused on bullying the Speaker than fixing the very serious problems keeping Saskatchewan people up at night. It’s one scandal after another. People are sick and tired of the Sask. Party soap opera.”

Last week, Speaker Randy Weekes made several disturbing allegations about the behaviour of Premier Scott Moe’s most trusted and senior officials. In addition to allegations of bullying and harassment, MLA Jeremy Harrison was said to have brought a long gun and sought permission to carry a handgun in the Legislative Assembly:

His desire to get permission to carry a handgun in the Legislative Assembly is particularly disturbing. Another incident reported by a former special constable was when the Government House Leader flaunted the rules concerning weapons when he brought a hunting rifle into the Legislative Building.

Premier Moe called the allegations “unequivocally false” but has not made MLA Harrison available to the media. Harrison was a no-show at numerous pre-scheduled public events in the last week.
