Preview Clip

A controversial loyalty pledge in Manitoba politics is no more. Two government backbenchers -- Rob Altemeyer (ALL'-tuh-meye-err) and Dave Gaudreau (GOH'-droh) -- posted the pledge in the NDP caucus room last March. They asked their caucus colleagues to sign the oath and swear they had not leaked secrets to the media. Premier Greg Selinger says no one was required to sign the document and he wants people to focus on a more important pledge. (The pledge has since been taken down and there is no word on how many caucus members signed it.)
