People in Winnipeg are sweating through a heat wave.

But it’s nothing like the heat the deputy premier is getting in Manitoba’s legislature.

Now the woman who says she was the one disparaged is rejecting apologies and pushing ahead with a human rights complaint.

APTN’s Melissa Ridgen has the story.
