A disciplinary committee of the Nunatsiavut Assembly has announced their decision regarding the allegations against the Speaker of the House, Pat Ford.
Glen Sheppard is the Deputy Speaker of the Nunatsiavut Assembly.
He says the committee met on August 25, in Happy Valley-Goose Bay.
They heard two complaints that were filed against Ford.
The complainants stated that Ford had breached section 4.1 of the Nunatsiavut Government's Code of Ethics.
That section states that a Nunatsiavut official shall not consume alcohol or illegal drugs, or be under the influence of alcohol or illegal drugs, while conducting or discussing Nunatsiavut business.
The committee concluded that Ford did not breach that code.
She had taken time off and was not conducting or discussing Nunatsiavut business.
The committee is recommending that Ford undergo counseling regarding the incident.
