OTTAWA - NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh is standing by his decision to expel Saskatchewan MP Erin Weir from caucus even though his original accuser, fellow MP Christine Moore, has herself been suspended from her duties over allegations of sexual misconduct.

Singh says the investigation into the harassment complaints against Weir was impartial and independent, and the fact it was Moore who flagged his behaviour as a concern is "not relevant at all."

Less than a week after Weir was kicked out of the NDP's ranks, Moore found herself temporarily suspended from her caucus duties after an Afghan veteran accused her of inappropriate sexual behaviour in 2013.

Retired corporal Glen Kirkland says many people knew about Moore's alleged actions, but that they were treated less seriously because of their respective genders.

But Singh says he and his team did not know about the allegations until Kirkland spoke to the media on Tuesday, and that he takes all complaints seriously.

Moore has said she welcomes Singh's decision to launch an investigation into Kirkland's complaints, tells the Globe and Mail that she disputes Kirkland's version of events.
