Ethics commissioner investigating Morneau’s sponsorship of pension bill

OTTAWA — Conflict of Interest and Ethics Commissioner Mary Dawson has confirmed she has launched a formal investigation into whether Finance Minister Bill Morneau has broken federal ethics law over his sponsorship of Bill C-27.

“We always are as careful as we can be to use the word examination when we’re talking about having launched an examination. Otherwise, we say we’re looking into something. It’s because when the media gets that word ‘investigation’ they confuse it between the two activities so we avoid the word investigation,” Dawson told CTV News.
