EDMONTON - A backbench Alberta Progressive Conservative member is withdrawing from caucus while the ethics commissioner investigates his business dealings.

Peter Sandhu, the member for Edmonton-Manning, said in a written release that he has asked for the investigation and is confident he will be exonerated.

He says he will step out of the PC caucus to allow his colleagues to work without distraction, but will remain the member of the legislature for his riding.

Sandhu made the decision after CBC report said it appears he recently failed to disclose debts owed by his home-building business to the ethics commissioner.

The CBC report also said Sandhu swore in a court document he was out of the country earlier this year when receipts and records suggest he was actually in Alberta.
