Sen. Carignan not in Cabinet, but to receive nearly $300,000 Senate government leader office budget

Quebec Conservative Senator Claude Carignan, the newly-appointed government leader in the Senate, is receiving the same nearly $300,000 office budget as former Senate government leader Marjory LeBreton even though he does not have the same range of duties after Prime Minister Stephen Harper excluded the post from Cabinet.
