MLA Peter Sandhu back in PC caucus
Edmonton-Manning MLA Peter Sandhu is back in the Alberta Progressive Conservative caucus.
“He asked caucus to allow him back in and he’s dealt with all the issues that he had,” Government House Leader Dave Hancock said Tuesday. “And so caucus agreed that he should come back.”
Last month, Ethics Commissioner Neil Wilkinson ruled that Sandhu breached the conflict of interest act six times, but decided not to sanction him because he had done the “right and honourable thing” by bringing the matter to his attention.

Sandhu stepped down from the PC caucus in May following a CBC News investigation involving unreported liabilities and lobbying that sparked the ethics probe.
However, he remained an independent MLA in the Alberta legislature until he was reinstated.
