Newly elected Liberal Member of Parliament comtted himself to rehab.. and dream on if you think it works.. Rookie Newfoundland MP Seamus O’Regan back from rehab, 40 days sober: ‘Alcohol was becoming a part of my daily life’. The newly elected Liberal MP sought treatment for an alcohol problem said Monday he is “reporting back for duty” in Ottawa. “Over the last year or two, alcohol was becoming a part of my daily life. I regularly had several drinks at the end of most days. Sometimes more than several drinks,” Now why did O’Regan not inform voters of his personal issues before the Oct. 19 vote. And why Trudeau did not require his friend to tackle his addiction prior to becoming a candidate.
