Sport and Persons with Disabilities Minister Kent Hehr has resigned from cabinet pending the outcome of an investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Thursday.

“Harassment of any kind is unacceptable and Canadians have a right to live and work in environments free from harassment. As a government we take any allegations of misconduct extremely seriously,” Trudeau said in a statement.

“Today, I accepted the Honourable Kent Hehr’s resignation from cabinet pending the outcome of the investigation.”
