Guergis: Drug allegations are “completely ridiculous”

Controversial former cabinet minister hires a lawyer to contest allegations

by

Helena Guergis told reporters Wednesday that allegations she was booted from the Conservative caucus over a drug-related matter are “completely ridiculous and an example of rumours gone amok.” CTV News reported on Tuesday that Guergis’s ouster was prompted by a private investigator’s sharing of information with a Conservative lawyer about the purchase and use of drugs and the potential threat of blackmail. Guergis has hired a lawyer to deal with controversy swirling around her and has pledged to “defend myself to the fullest extent to ensure that the record is set straight.”
