Saskatchewan’s Conflict of Interest Commissioner is set to release a report today (Mon) regarding outgoing SaskParty MLA Bill Boyd’s business trip to China.
Boyd asked Ron Barclay to look at his trip, made earlier this year, to see if there was any wrongdoing, and the opposition NDP also asked Barclay to look into it.
Recent reports suggested Boyd used the Saskatchewan Party logo and promotional material indicating he was the minister of economy – a position he no longer had – to seek investors in an agricultural irrigation company that he was involved with.
The Premier’s office says until recently they were unaware of the nature of the trip, adding it was a personal business trip.
In a letter to Boyd, Premier Brad Wall said as a SaskParty MLA, Boyd should “be more vigilant in ensuring that the Government of Saskatchewan is never inaccurately represented.”
