Drunken Sex Scandal - Alberta

Former staffer suing Premier Kenney's office for wrongful dismissal after alleging sexual harassment, intoxication


A former senior staff member in Alberta's UCP government has filed a lawsuit against the premier’s office alleging she was fired for speaking out about sexual harassment, heavy drinking and a "poisoned work environment."

In the statement of claim filed in the Court of Queen’s Bench in Edmonton, Ariella Kimmel alleges she witnessed sexual harassment of another female staffer, says she was verbally abused while working for Premier Jason Kenney’s government and even blew the whistle on the behaviour before losing her job in “reprisal.”

Kimmel, who was hired as the Chief of Staff to the Minister of Jobs, Economy and Innovation on Aug. 31, 2020, did not respond to CTV’s request for an interview, but her lawyer, Kathryn Marshall issued a statement.

“Everyone deserves a safe work environment free from harassment. In the past few years, we have seen numerous incidents of inappropriate conduct in political offices. Political staffers are often forced to suffer in silence and have little to no recourse. It is wrong, and it needs to end. Politicians must lead by example. Every political office should have a clear sexual harassment policy and no political staffer should ever be fired from his or her job for blowing the whistle on sexual harassment, as was done in this case,” she said.

Kenney wasn’t named in the suit from what I heard on the news.

I think they dated for a bit on and off. Not making excuses, but situations like this usually have more to them.
