The Liberals voted no to the Conservative motion which argued MPs should have to repay expenses from illegal activity.
The parties refusal to implement a strong response to illegal activity from Members of Parliment is rather interesting and important.
The Liberal party entered in 2015 as a response to a tired Conservative party which was dragged along through scandal after scandal. Some of the largest involving improper expenses.
The Liberals have already been caught eating out of the public purse.
As Documents tabled in the House of Commons in September revealed Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s office alone spent roughly $220,000 moving his staff to Ottawa, with one staffer billing the taxpayer $126,669.56 in relocation costs.
Outside of improper expenses, the party has also faced multiple ethical violations, with the Prime Minister himself receiving scrutiny as a result of his trip to the Agha Khans private island.
With this significant amount of baggage, this vote could be the moment that breaks the camels back. The Conservatives will now continue to attack the Liberal party for refusing to act, likely arguing that the Liberals have something to hide.
In response, the Liberals will have nothing to say.
