   A report on sexual harassment allegations against former Liberal cabinet minister Kent Hehr has concluded with the MP being told that he will not be allowed to return to cabinet — but will be allowed to remain a member of the federal Liberal caucus.
   "I am grateful to the prime minister for this process as it has allowed these issues to be more fully understood by all involved," Hehr said in a statement posted to Twitter. "While I will not be returning to cabinet, I will continue to work hard to serve the good people of Calgary Centre as a member of the Liberal caucus."
   Hehr resigned from cabinet after Kristin Raworth of Edmonton published a series of tweets earlier this year alleging the Liberal minister had made women feel "unsafe" at Alberta's legislature with unwanted, sexually suggestive comments, and had made suggestive remarks to her, including, "You're yummy."
