From March 3rd 2011 to May 31st 2011 Senator Pamela Wallin reported $25,870.07 in ‘Other travel’ paid for by Canadians. Coincidentally during that time there was a Federal election.
During the last federal election, Senator Pamela Wallin helped Conservative incumbent Ray Boughen's campaign in Saskatchewan's Palliser Riding. This was a seat that the Conservatives were very worried about because of the strong campaign led by New Democratic candidate, Noah Evanchuk.
The Conservatives threw everything they had into trying to win the riding. On Election night, Conservative Boughen squeaked out a slim victory by about 700 votes.
