After a two-year investigation into Senators’ expenses by the auditor general's office, the full report will be made public today. Senate Speaker Leo Housakos will table the report in the Senate at 2 p.m. Auditor General Michael Ferguson and his office reviewed 80,000 transactions worth $180-million and found almost $1-million of questionable spending. He is referring nine cases to the RCMP. Two of those nine are still sitting Senators: Ontario Liberal Senator Colin Kenny and Quebec Conservative Pierre-Hugues Boisvenu. In a statement Mr. Kenny said he would “continue to work to defend himself and fully expects to be vindicated at the conclusion of the process.” Sen. Boisvenu stepped down from the Conservative caucus last week saying that he made the decision voluntarily because he was the subject of an RCMP investigation. Twenty-one Senators in total have been asked to repay expense claims they received from the Senate between 2011 and 2013, including Speaker Housakos, Government Senate Leader Claude Carignan and Opposition Senate Leader James Cowan. Both Senators Housakos and Cowan in a statement yesterday said they have repaid their questionable expenses claimed in full so as not to tarnish the arbitration process they had created. Sen. Cowan said in the statement that he continues “to respectfully disagree with the findings of the Auditor General with respect to three trips, taken on parliamentary business, for which claims were submitted, approved and reimbursed in 2011. I stand by my position that all expenses charged by me to the Senate were, and will continue to be, entirely appropriate.” Sen. Housakos also noted: “I remain steadfast in my belief that all of my actions as a Senator and now as Speaker have been in good faith, in adherence with the rules governing the Senate and most of all with due regard for Canadians.” The report will be available to media in a lock up from 12 to 2 p.m. in room 237-C Centre Block. After the report is tabled in the Senate, Sen. Housakos will hold a press conference at 2:15 p.m. in the Senate foyer. Mr. Ferguson will also hold a press conference at 3:45 p.m. at the National Press Theatre on 150 Wellington St., in downtown Ottawa. Opposition MPs Charlie Angus (Timmins-James Bay, Ont.) and Alexandre Boulerice (Rosemount-La Petite Patrie, Que.) will react to the report at 4:30 p.m. in the National Press Theatre.

House to say goodbye to MPs not running in next election Canadian Heritage Minister Shelly Glover will not be running in the next federal election. The Hill Times photograph by Jake Wright So far, 51 incumbent MPs are not running in the next election, expected this fall. Government House Leader Peter Van Loan (York-Simcoe, Ont.) moved a motion last week to hold a take-note debate on the issue, allowing MPs to say goodbye and wish each other farewell. “As we approach the end of this Parliament, we are aware that there are a number of our colleagues who have already indicated their intention not to seek re-election. As such, there have been discussions among the parties about how we can appropriately accommodate an opportunity for these members to provide a valedictory or departure speech summarizing their significant contributions to our country,” Mr. Van Loan said in the House. The motion received unanimous consent and the farewell speeches will begin today for four hours and continue on Wednesday, finishing either at midnight or when no more MPs rise to speak on the subject. There are 28 incumbent Conservative MPs not seeking reelection, 13 NDP MPs, five Liberals, one Bloc Quebecois, and four independents.
