The Saskatchewan government says disciplinary measures will be taken against an employee who made an inappropriate social media post about China.

A screen shot of a text exchange was posted to the Instagram account of Alyssa Leippi and began circulating on social media this week.

The conversation is about eating dogs and China.

The government’s directory lists Leippi as an adviser and consultant for communications services with the executive council and Premier Scott Moe’s office.

Advertisment

A spokesman for the premier’s office says the “inappropriate social media activity” doesn’t reflect the government’s views and policies.

Jim Billington says the issue has been raised with the employee and human resources is making sure proper “disciplinary and corrective measures” will be taken.
