The Senator facing extreme criticism for his alleged sexual relationship with a teenage girl, Don Meredith, has been forced to cancel a scheduled trip to attend a United Nations conference on the status of women this week. The annual meeting of the Commission on Status of Women began on Monday in New York and, according to the UN, the organization is “dedicated to the promotion of gender equality and the empowerment of women.”

Initially, a Conservative senator had planned to attend the event but he was forced to cancel and the Independent Senate Group, a group of senators, named Meredith as a last-minute substitution. However, Conservative Senator Don Plett explained that when he learned about Meredith being under an ethics investigation, after the Toronto Star revealed his sexual relationship with the teenage girl, he said that “I found out about it and put an immediate stop to it.” Plett stressed that “there is no way on this Earth that Don Meredith is going to a status of women conference when he’s under investigation for unethical activity with regards to a young woman.” He concluded that “it would be absolutely, entirely inappropriate for him to go on his trip.”

A report published by the Senate ethics overseer last week concluded Meredith violated “the highest standards of dignity” of the Senate when he “lured” a teenage girl into a sexual relationship. Sen. Meredith has been asked to resign by many of his colleagues, including the leader of the government in the Senate, members of the independent group and Conservatives.
