Manitoba Ethics Commissioner Jeffrey Schnoor advised the Prime Minister Wab Kinew not to write a new book during his term and not to promote his old books.

In a letter dated November 2, and provided to CBC by the Prime Minister's Office, Jeffrey Schnoor wrote: You should not submit anything else to publish while you are prime minister, unless it is related to your official powers, functions or duties.

Wab Kinew wrote his memoirs in The Reason You Walk, published in 2015, and three fiction books: Go Show The World, a children's book published in 2018, as well as Walking in Two Worlds and The Everlasting Road, two fantasy novels for young adults published in 2021 and 2023.

Jeffrey Schnoor asked the Prime Minister not to get involved in promotional activities for his old books and to ask his publisher to avoid referring to his position as Prime Minister in promotional activities.

Wab Kinew must not make a decision or participate in a decision that would affect materially and specifically the book publishing industry, including print and other modes or media of publication, nor use his position to influence such a decision, wrote Jeffrey Schnoor .

The commissioner also asked the premier to ensure that senior provincial officials do not speak to him on any issues relating to book publishing.

Wab Kinew can nevertheless continue to receive royalties from its existing books. In 2016, the year he became an MP, more than half of his income came from book royalties and public speaking engagements.

Wab Kinew took note of the decision of the Ethics Commissioner. Being premier is my first and only job right now, and I think it's important, in the spirit of transparency, to share with Manitobans what advice the Ethics Commissioner gave me, said the Prime Minister in an interview last week.
