Two Liberal MPs accused of sexual harassment to get permanent boot

Two Liberal MPs accused of sexual misconduct toward two female NDP colleagues are expected to be told today that they’re being permanently booted from the Grit fold.

Liberal insiders say the fate of Montreal MP Massimo Pacetti and Newfoundland MP Scott Andrews has been decided by Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau after receiving the results of an independent investigation he ordered into complaints levelled against them.

Toronto lawyer Cynthia Petersen, a human rights specialist who has investigated sexual harassment complaints in the private sector, handed Trudeau her report on Pacetti and Andrews last week.
