Tories go after Grits over fundraising

Federal Conservatives will use an opposition day today to push for more power for the ethics commissioner.

They want Mary Dawson to have the ability to enforce one of Prime Minister Trudeau’s own directives. Cabinet ministers are supposed to avoid even the appearance of giving preferential access to individuals who donate to the Liberals. Dawson has said so-called cash-for-access fundraisers are not very savoury, but she can’t satop them.
