Moncton Centre MLA & House Speaker Chris Collins spoke to the media yesterday for the first time since harassment allegations surfaced…Collins said while most of the allegations weren’t founded, a “few related to incidents in which I spoke in a manner in which I was perceived to be inappropriate by the complainant. For that, I am very apologetic,” he said. “I understand that while I may perceive my words to have been humorous or inoffensive, others may have a very different, yet legitimate perspective. It is important that those perspectives be heard, understood and legitimized, through a fair and thorough investigation.” Collins thanked his wife, friends and the constituents of his Moncton Centre riding for their support. Collins said he hasn’t decided whether to run in September’s election.
