A Manitoba NDP cabinet minister has apologized for calling a Conservative MLA a "fascist." MLA Reg Helwer said he was responding to the government's throne speech on Tuesday when Municipal Affairs Minister Drew Caldwell heckled him. The remark was not recorded in Hansard but Caldwell apologized to the legislature today. (Helwer, who is of German decent, says the insult was unacceptable and has damaged his reputation.)
