Conservatives, NDP call for an ethics probe in finance minister´s holdings
(The Star Food)

OTTAWA—The opposition parties are turning up the heat on Finance Minister Bill Morneau over what he disclosed, or didn’t disclose, to the federal ethics watchdog about his vast financial holdings.On Monday, the Conservatives called for an investigation into revelations that Morneau didn’t tell the conflict of interest and ethics commissioner for two years that he and his wife own a private corporation that controls a villa in France.Today, the Tories pushed further, demanding that Morneau publicly divulge everything he has submitted to the ethics commissioner since the Liberals took office in 2015.Read more: Trudeau and Morneau’s efforts to sugar-coat tax reforms turns into comedy of errors: HébertShould we know what the federal finance minister owns?The NDP also called on commissioner Mary Dawson to investigate what they see as a perceived conflict by Morneau over pension reform legislation that could benefit the finance minister through shares he owns in human resources consulting giant Morneau-Shepell.New Democrat ethics critic Nathan Cullen said the revelation that Morneau has not placed his financial holdings into a blind trust is evidence enough that an investigation is needed.Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has maintained that Morneau has followed all federal ethics rules.
