Ethics Committee votes to investigate conflict of interest violation by Minister Mary Ng
by The Canadian Parvasi
A House of Commons Ethics Committee on Tuesday voted to probe the conflict-of-interest violation ruling against International Trade Minister Mary Ng. Following a request by four of its members, the ethics committee will hold a special meeting regarding the issue.
The motion for the probe, which passed by a census, was raised by Conservative ethics critic Michael Barrett, who stated that Canadians deserved to know in full what transpired.
Back in December of 2022, Canada’s conflict of interest and ethics commissioner, Mario Dion, ruled that the Trade Minister had put herself in a conflict of interest by awarding contracts of her office to her friend’s company.
