WINNIPEG - Calls for more transparency about her undisclosed property and its sale continue to hound Manitoba Premier Heather Stefanson.
Liberal Leader Dougald Lamont has asked the Court of King's Bench to expedite a hearing on whether Stefanson violated the Legislative Assembly and Executive Council Conflict of Interest Act by failing to disclose the sale of more than $31 million in property in 2016 and 2019.
Lamont went to court because that's the only way to hold a member of the Manitoba Legislative Assembly accountable if they are alleged to have violated the act.
Lamont's lawyer has made a formal application to the court for a hearing on the matter.
The premier's press secretary says Stefanson will respect the court process.
