Progressive Conservative MPP Jack MacLaren has been ordered to take sensitivity training after telling a sexist joke about a Liberal MP.
PC Leader Patrick Brown told MacLaren to stay away from the legislature for an indefinite period of time because of “recent inappropriate conduct.”
MacLaren represents the Ottawa-area riding of Carleton-Mississippi Mills and was demoted last week as the PC caucus representative for eastern Ontario.
MacLaren eventually issued an apology for his remarks about Liberal MP Karen McCrimmon during a fundraising event last month.
Premier Kathleen Wynne has sent a letter to the Speaker of the legislature saying she wants the parties to develop a code of conduct for MPP’s.
