Kent calls on ethics commissioner to investigate Morneau over corporation that holds French villa

Finance Minister Bill Morneau is facing a call for an investigation into his failure for two years to disclose one of his private corporations to Canada’s ethics watchdog.

In a letter to Conflict of Interest and Ethics Commissioner Mary Dawson, Conservative MP Peter Kent asks her to take a closer look at SCI Mas des Morneau, a company incorporated in France that owns and manages Morneau’s villa in the picturesque town of Oppède in France’s Provence region. Morneau and his wife, Nancy McCain, are listed as partners.
