MP In Trouble For Travelling

Manitoba Post StaffNews

WINNIPEG – An NDP member of parliament from Manitoba is in hot water for travelling abroad during the pandemic.

Churchill-Keewatinook Aski MP Niki Ashton tweeted on Friday that she’s in Greece to be with a sick family member.

The party says while it’s sympathetic, Ashton has gone against public health recommendations and she will no longer serve as a critic on the shadow cabinet.

The day before Ashton’s tweet, Ontario’s finance minister resigned for vacationing in the Caribbean over the holidays.
