Auditor general would nix community service, says senator

(June 8, 2015)  OTTAWA – The Senate’s deputy Speaker says auditor general Michael Ferguson’s restrictive definition of what constitutes a parliamentary function would hamper senators from engaging in community service in future. Nicole Eaton says Ferguson has disallowed $3,489 worth of expense claims for four trips she made to her hometown of Toronto to attend meetings of not-for-profit boards on which she sits.
