A 28-year-old man with a Saskatchewan driver’s licence was stopped in downtown Vancouver early Thursday, driving a vehicle that is said to belong to Premier Scott Moe.

CKRM has reached out to Premier Moe’s office for comment.

“A vehicle registered in Scott Moe’s name was impounded in British Columbia this week. The Office of the Premier will not be commenting further on a personal matter,” stated an email from Julie Leggott, deputy chief of staff for communications and press secretary to Moe.

No criminal charges were laid, but the vehicle in question was impounded for 30 days and the driver received an automatic 90-day suspension.
