Guergis cleared by RCMP: lawyer

"No further action" to be taken against former minister

A statement released by Helena Guergis’s office says the former Conservative minister has been cleared by the RCMP. “Helena Guergis’ counsel, Howard Rubel confirmed today that the RCMP has concluded its inquiries into Ms. Guergis and that he has been informed that the RCMP will be taking no further action,” the statement reads, adding “the RCMP has concluded that there was no substance to any of the issues forwarded to them by the Prime Minister’s Office.” The former junior minister was turfed from the cabinet and the Conservative caucus last April after the publication of several damaging news stories about her husband Rahim Jaffer’s business dealings.
