WINNIPEG - An NDP member of parliament from Manitoba is in hot water for travelling abroad during the pandemic.
Churchill-Keewatinook Aski MP Niki Ashton tweeted on Friday that she's in Greece to be with a sick family member.
Wishing everyone a better year ahead. Bonne année à tous.
After spending Christmas alone with our family at home in MB, now I am with my ailing grandmother, my γιαγιά, in Greece. Χρόνια Πολλά με υγεία.

The party says while it's sympathetic, Ashton has gone against public health recommendations and she will no longer serve as a critic on the shadow cabinet.
The day before Ashton's tweet, Ontario's finance minister resigned for vacationing in the Caribbean over the holidays.
