Saskatchewan MLA Boyd, in Violation of Conflict of Interest Act, Resigns from Party Caucus Five Days Before Scheduled to Resign from Legislative Assembly
On August 28, Member of the Legislative Assembly (MLA) Bill Boyd resigned from the Saskatchewan Party Caucus, even though Boyd previously announced his resignation from the Legislative Assembly will be on Friday, September 1.
Boyd resigned at the request of Premier Brad Wall, whose request was based on the Conflict of Interest Commissioner’s finding Boyd violated the Conflict of Interest Act when Boyd inaccurately represented himself and the Government of Saskatchewan while on business in China.
MLA Boyd, who represents the Kindersley electoral district, was last elected in 2016 and had already announced earlier this month he was retiring on September 1, giving the reason that allowing a new MLA could be part of the Saskatchewan Party’s renewal.
