Allegations of sexual harassment have been levelled against Calgary Skyview MP Darshan Kang, according to a Parliament Hill news outlet.

Ottawa-based political newspaper the Hill-Times reported Friday the allegations were against the rookie Liberal MP by a staffer at his Calgary constituency office. 

Pierre Parent, head of human resources in the House of Commons, has opened an investigation into the matter, according to a statement sent to the publication by the office of the chief government whip. 

While declining to offer details of the allegations, chief of staff Charles-Eric Lepine told the Hill-Times they were made aware of the allegations, and as per policy referred them to the house human resources office.

Kang, 66, served two terms as a provincial MLA for the riding of Calgary-McCall.

He made the jump to federal politics in the 2015 election, when he and Calgary Centre MP Kent Hehr became the first Liberals to win federal ridings in Calgary in almost 50 years. 

Invitations for comment by Postmedia to both Kang and government officials in Ottawa weren’t immediately returned.
