Preview Clip

A Manitoba member of the legislature says he was called a "fascist" by an NDP cabinet minister. Reg Helwer, who is of German descent, says he was responding to the government's throne speech on Tuesday when Municipal Affairs Minister Drew Caldwell heckled him. Caldwell did not immediately respond to the allegation, but house leader Dave Chomiak apologized to the legislature on Caldwell's behalf. (The remark was not recorded in Hansard.)
