Documents reveal Durham MP stayed in a luxury hotel in London, England, after cancelling a reservation at a five star location
Documents obtained by the Canadian Press under the Access to Information Act reveal that International Cooperation Minister and Durham MP Bev Oda expensed a luxurious London stay to taxpayers. The report reveals while in England last year for a conference on immunizing children in developing countries, Oda declined a reservation at a five-star hotel, and instead rebooked at one of the swankiest hotel in the city, the Savoy, for $665 a night. Documents also show that a luxury car and driver were hired to shuttle Oda around at a cost of nearly $1000 a day. Minister Oda says there was a cancellation fee for changing hotels, which she paid for herself, and as far as the vehicle goes, she says they were following Treasury Board guidelines.

This is not the first time I have seen her name in the news for something she has done wrong!!! Why is she getting away with this?

Look her up on Wikipedia. She has done a few things and has had to pay back money for limo expenses among other things

Yes after she got caught. Is there ANY honest MP left in this country?

Whatever happened to the term ‘civil servant’? Oda already collects a hefty salary .. at taxpayers’ expense .. extra $ for sitting on various committees (whether or not they actually meet) .. this at taxpayers’ expense .. and now she has to fleece the taxpayers with her exhorbitant tastes. As far as I’m concerned, she’s half a step above a ‘crook’!! Saddest point of all, is thast nothing is being done about this and she’s probably one of many. We Canadians just keep getting ripped off!
