United Conservative Party Leader Jason Kenney says his party has a "zero tolerance" approach towards sexual misconduct.

A day after being sworn in to the Legislature, Kenney says those looking to run for the UCP will face "rigorous" background checks for any conduct related to sexual harassment or aggression.

Kenney also says the Party will do more to encourage women to run for them in the 2019 election.

Right now only two of the UCP's 26 member caucus are women.
