Finance Minister Flaherty Under Investigation By Ethics Commissioner
The House of Commons Ethics Commissioner, Mary Dawson, has advised Conservative Finance Minister Jim Flaherty that he is under investigation. In fact, Flaherty has now admitted that his office broke government contracting rules when it hired Hugh MacPhie and paid him $122,000 without tender to write the budget speech last year and provide communications advice.
