Mr. Speaker, as I have already said, constitutional practice has been quite clear on this for more than 150 years.
However, what is also clear is that one is not allowed to use House of Commons resources for partisan political purposes.
Now, this member used more than $25,000 of House of Commons resources for political purposes.
The member for Scarborough Southwest took it to a different level. He took almost $140,000 worth of resources that would have been used in his constituency and funnelled it to an illegal office in Montreal.
They should pay it back.
