Statement on Christine Moore

NDP Leader, Jagmeet Singh, made the following statement:

“Yesterday, a member of media from the CBC contacted my office regarding allegations made by a Mr. Glen Kirkland of inappropriate conduct by a member of our caucus, Christine Moore.

I take these allegations very seriously and I will be appointing an independent investigator to conduct a fair and full examination.

While that process is ongoing, Mme Moore’s duties as an NDP MP, including participation on any committee, will be temporarily suspended. Once the work of the investigator has been completed, Mme Moore’s role in caucus will be re-evaluated.”
