QUEBEC – A Liberal member of the Quebec legislature is now sitting as an Independent after quitting the governing caucus last night.

Premier Philippe Couillard issued a statement saying Gerry Sklavounos (SKLA’-voo-nas) stepped down from the Liberal caucus after a young woman alleged she was sexually assaulted by a member of the legislature.

Couillard says he has asked the party whip to launch an internal investigation into the allegations and Quebec city police are also investigating a complaint.

The issue first surfaced on Wednesday at a Laval University vigil in support of victims of alleged sex crimes at a student residence.

A woman told the vigil she was assaulted while working at a Quebec City restaurant in 2014.

In a Facebook post that has since been deleted, the woman wrote that the person she alleges assaulted her was a Liberal member of the legislature.

Sklavounos has yet to comment on the allegations.
