ETHICS COM­MIT­TEE URGES CEN­SURE OF TORY SEN­A­TOR

Calgary Herald - - CANADA -

OT­TAWA The Se­nate’s ethics com­mit­tee is rec­om­mend­ing a Con­ser­va­tive sen­a­tor be cen­sured for breach­ing the up­per house’s ethics code when he ac­cepted an all-ex­penses paid trip to China in 2017.

The com­mit­tee’s rec­om­men­da­tion fol­lows a Fe­bru­ary re­port by the Se­nate ethics of­fi­cer, who found Sen. Vic­tor Oh, pic­tured, blurred the line be­tween pri­vate and pub­lic af­fairs dur­ing the trip.

Pierre Le­gault ruled that Oh breached the code four times and then with­held in­for­ma­tion and de­lib­er­ately mis­led the in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the trip, rais­ing ques­tions about his in­tegrity.
