Darshan Kang apologizes for behaviour

A former Calgary Liberal MP who was found by his peers to have sexually harassed a member of his office staff is apologizing to the victim for unintentionally causing her difficulty.
But reading from a prepared statement, Darshan Kang also maintains neither his intention nor his actions were improper.
Kang spoke in the House of Commons Monday morning, about seven months after an all-party committee ordered him to go to training over founded allegations of sexual harassment. The Calgary Skyview MP left the Liberal caucus last summer after a staffer alleged he had sexually harassed and assaulted her.
A House of Commons investigation concluded it could verify some of the complaints, including that he had improperly tried to get into the woman’s hotel room in Ottawa.
Kang, who still sits as an independent, says he plans to remain an MP.
“I have consistently maintained that my intentions and conduct have been proper and honourable. These are the values which I live my life by, however, if any of my actions have unintentionally caused difficulty for any person, I’m sorry and I sincerely apologize,” Kang said.
