The fall session of the Legislature got underway Wednesday afternoon, and it started with an apology from former deputy premier and Sask liquor and gaming minister Don McMorris.
McMorris is serving as an independent during this session after leaving the Saskparty caucus following a guilty plea to drinking and driving this summer.
McMorris says with this being the first day of the session, an apology to his fellow MLA’s was needed.
He told the assembly that there’s no rationale for his actions.
McMorris resigned from cabinet one day after being charged in August, and was sentenced to a fine of 18 hundred dollars and given a one year licence suspension one month later
He says he is humbled by the support he has gotten from many since the incident.
He also told reporters after Question Period he may be able to help the government with ideas to be tougher on drinking and driving because of his experience.
