Preview Clip

A former Nova Scotia cabinet minister says he unintentionally misstated when he was made aware of a parliamentary privilege that he contends prevented him from appearing in court for the trial of a woman accused of assaulting him. Andrew Younger was dropped from cabinet and caucus by Premier Stephen McNeil over the error. McNeil says he's standing by his decision and denying that his staff stage-managed Younger's media comments. (Premier Stephen McNeil announced last night he kicked Younger out of cabinet because he didn't provide accurate information on when he knew about the parliamentary privilege that affected the course of the trial.)
