Tory MP Bezan faces committee

  • Print

THE House of Commons has instructed a standing committee to look into a dispute between Elections Canada and Manitoba Tory MP James Bezan (Selkirk-Interlake) that could get his voting privileges suspended.

The chief electoral officer wrote to Commons Speaker Andrew Scheer last spring asking that Bezan and fellow Conservative MP Shelly Glover (Saint Boniface) lose their privileges over problems with their campaign expense reports.

Glover filed a new report, resolving the issue, but Bezan, who insists he's done nothing wrong, is going to court.

Last June, Scheer ruled both cases could go to the committee on procedure and House affairs, but then Parliament was prorogued. After Toronto NDP MP Craig Scott resurrected the complaint against Bezan, the Commons agreed to turn the matter over to the committee.
