Brian Pallister will hold court with members of his caucus for the first time since his widely condemned remarks on Canada’s history prompted rare public criticism from his MLAs and heightened speculation he will step down from politics.

The occasion is the Progressive Conservatives’ summer caucus retreat from Tuesday to Wednesday in Brandon. MLAs are staying at the Canad Inns hotel.

Pallister, who has since apologized for the misunderstanding his comments caused, is expected to address the media on Tuesday.
