Kent Hehr Resigns From Trudeau Liberal Cabinet

Hehr faces allegations of sexual harassment.

Kent Hehr – formerly the minister for sport and disabilities – has resigned.

The resignation comes in the wake of allegations of sexual harassment dating to his time in the Alberta Legislature.

Justin Trudeau accepted Hehr’s resignation in a statement:

“Harassment of any kind is unacceptable and Canadians have a right to live and work in environments free from harassment. As a government, we take any allegations of misconduct extremely seriously, and we believe that it is important to support women who come forward with allegations and that is exactly what our government will do.”

Unpopular minister

Even before the allegations against Hehr, he had become a very unpopular minister. Many felt he treated Veterans and the families of Veterans disrespectfully – including deleting comments from Veterans on his Facebook page, even when people were making legitimate requests for help.

He was also criticized for how he treated Thalidomide survivors, including allegedly telling them that “everyone in Canada has a sob story.”

Hehr’s duties will be filled by science minister Kirsty Duncan.

Since the veteran’s issue,Hehr has been nothing but an embarrassment to the LPC. Given Hehr’s attitude,I’m surprised he was a candidate in the first place,was it due to affirmative action,and that they needed a token guy in a wheelchair to round out their precious diversity ?

I’ll give Trudeau credit,he or Gerald Butts is smart enough to realize when a person has become a liability,and fires him immediately.

I don’t like the guy but shouldn’t he be tried in a court of law and not in the court of public opinion? I am not saying he is innocent but until proven so he is.

Too Bad the PM Truduea would step down on his 4 Ethics findings!!
If only our PM would know there is different harassment’s!
Power is one.
Main article: Power harassment
Power harassment is harassment or unwelcome attention of a political nature, often occurring in the environment of a workplace including hospitals, schools and universities. It includes a range of behavior from mild irritation and annoyances to serious abuses which can even involve forced activity beyond the boundaries of the job description. Power harassment is considered a form of illegal discrimination and is a form of political and psychological abuse, and bullying.

Hehr is feeding at the trough. Any person with morals and standards would leave Government but Hehr wants the paycheque and benefits.

The same should apply to Trudeau for breaking the law, assault for intentionally smashing a woman’s breast right in the Commons, lying about a “holiday” when it was a secret meeting with the Clinton / Obama cartel and on and on and on.

Treason.

Not sure if true but I have heard stories about young Justin Trudeau’s life before he was interested in politics and there are skeletons in his closet. If true it would seem that women have either been paid off or threatened to stay quiet. It doesn’t take much of a visionary to see through this man, to see that “feminist” image he portrays is an act. A true feminist would not visit gender segregated mosques in Canada. He would also not be trying to forge a relationship with Iran, a country with a horrible womens rights history. He is a… Read more »

When will Justin Trudeau resign for elbowing a ndper in a her breast and telling another ” to get the f*ck out of my way” ? And when will he resign for violations of ethics rules? I guess never since the lpc are held above the law.
