No work, no salary for ab­sen­tee Lib­eral MP

Ottawa Sun - - NEWS -

The mys­te­ri­ous case of a miss­ing MP has taken an­other twist.

The Lib­eral party’s whip says Nicola Di Io­rio, who hasn’t been seen on the Hill since Par­lia­ment re­sumed on Sept. 17, will give back the salary he receives dur­ing his fi­nal five months as an MP be­fore his of­fi­cial re­tire­ment.

Ac­cord­ing to Mark Hol­land, the Mon­treal MP has de­cided to “do­nate his salary back” dur­ing the pe­riod from Septem­ber to Jan. 22.

While he’s been ab­sent from the House of Commons, Di Io­rio was spot­ted at a cannabis trade show in Mon­treal last month, where he made a pre­sen­ta­tion in his ca­pac­ity as a labour and em­ploy­ment lawyer.
