DROUIN TARGET OF ALLEGATION

Le Reflet (The News) - - ACTUALITÉS / NEWS -

Fran­cis Drouin, MP for Glen­gar­ry-Pres­cott-Rus­sell, is at the cen­ter of an allegation of sexual as­sault that oc­cur­red Sa­tur­day in Ha­li­fax, No­va Sco­tia.

The in­ci­dent oc­cur­red at 2 a.m. in a bar, not far from where the Li­be­ral Par­ty of Ca­na­da conven­tion was held.

The Ha­li­fax Re­gio­nal Po­lice has ope­ned an in­ves­ti­ga­tion to shed light on this allegation. At press time, no charges have been brought against Drouin. The young mem­ber re­mains a mem­ber of the Li­be­ral cau­cus.

In a sta­te­ment he pos­ted on his Fa­ce­book page on Tues­day, Drouin claims that the com­plai­nant was mis­ta­ken and de­nied any in­vol­ve­ment in this mat­ter.
