But she’s keeping her lips zipped over the details.
In the House Thursday, opposition MPs peppered Oda with questions over why her publicly available past travel expenses have been amended online, including trips to East Africa and Haiti.
From NDP MP Charlie Angus in Question Period – (Oda) was caught hiding outrageous limo expenses. She has been caught and had to pay back for her rock star trip to London. Now we find she has been changing the travel claims for her latest round of trips.
Canadians play by the rules, but the government seems to think it is above it. My simple question is, what is the minister trying to hide this time?
Oda’s stock response (aided in later questions by House Leader Peter Van Loan): Mr. Speaker, all incremental costs that should not have been expensed, including extraneous car service, et cetera, have been repaid. Only appropriate expenses, eligible expenses have been paid by the government.
That’s good to know.
