The NDP tried to pull a fast one by using taxpayers’ money to help them set up “outreach offices” in Toronto and Saskatchewan after being given permission to set up one in Montreal:
The party currently has outreach offices in Toronto and another in Montreal — and is looking to set up one in Saskatchewan. All of these, the NDP says, have been given the go-ahead by the Speaker’s office.
But late today, the Speaker’s office told iPolitics that although the NDP Montreal satellite outpost was given the go-ahead in 2011, that green light might not apply to new offices the party has opened since then.
Asked in an email to elaborate on that warning, Heather Bradley, director of communications in the Speaker’s office, would only add, “The matter has been brought to the attention of the Board of Internal Economy.” (see here)
Give a Socialist and inch….
