NDP calls for Elections Canada investigation into Mike Duffy’s campaign expenses

Elections Canada needs to get to the bottom of “double-dipping” allegations

TORONTO – Today, NDP Democratic Reform critic Craig Scott (Toronto-Danforth) sent a letter to Elections Canada asking for an investigation of Mike Duffy’s expense claims from the last federal election.

“Media reports indicate that the Senator may have been claiming taxpayer-funded expenses while campaigning during the last election,” said Scott. “Today, I wrote to the Commissioner of Elections Canada asking for them to investigate possible Elections Act violations and get to the bottom of this troubling affair.”

The letter to the Commissioner is attached.
