Faced with allegations she and her family mistreated two live-in caregivers, Ruby Dhalla issues a formal statement:
“This morning I called the leader to personally tender my resignation as Multiculturalism & Youth Critic in order to focus my attention on clearing my name. I will work with the appropriate officials to ensure the facts of the matter are clarified and corrected regarding my family’s experience with live-in caregivers and will work vigorously to defend my reputation. I am honored to represent the people of Brampton-Springdale and I will continue to do so. My constituents remain my first priority.”
UPDATE: Dhalla calls in the ethics commissioner.
