The RCMP have received reports from the auditor general after he sent over 100 notices to current and former senators about their expenses. Of those 100 notices, up to 10 of them were about “very troubling” expenses that added up to over 100 thousand dollars. The independent Audit comes after the Mike Duffy trail shows that other senators may have troublesome expenses.
“[This Audit] is going to be messy, its going to be expensive” says Irene Mathyssen, MP for the London Fanshawe riding. “How much more will it cost to find out the truth?”
“It’ll be interesting to see what the Auditor Genera reports upon, and it’ll be even more interesting to see how the government will respond” adds Mathyssen. “They took Mike Duffy to task, it looks like they’re taking Pamela Wallin to task, when will it end?”
Mathyssen is referring to one of the senators who may be apart of a large senate expense scandal involving up to 10 senators
She also adds that she wants see more accountability in the senate
