Kenney said that he spoke with the Minister after the news came out, "I conveyed to him my profound disappointment in his decision to contact the Edmonton Police Chief after receiving a ticket for a traffic violation."
Kenney stated that Minister Madu told him that he did not ask to have the ticket rescinded.
The CBC report also stated that Chief McFee the Edmonton Police Chief is on the record as saying that Minister Madu also didn't ask for the ticket to be rescinded.
Kenney will appoint a independent investigator to over look the file. " I will appoint a respected independent investigator to review the relevant facts and to determine whether there was interference in the administration of justice in this case."
