NS Municipal Expenses at a strip club

Municipal Affairs Minister Zach Churchill says taxpayers won’t be paying for alcohol expensed by councillors and municipal officials.

Churchill says a new bill will be introduced to bring the expense rules for municipalities in line with those for provincial politicians.  This comes after the scandal in Richmond County heavily criticized by the Ombudsman.  Among expense claims were thousands of dollars spent on alcohol and $582 for visits to two Texas strip clubs.
