The ethics commissioner confirmed Wednesday evening that he will be expanding the scope of his investigation into Finance Minister Bill Morneau’s possible ethics violations.

MP Michael Barrett tweeted a letter from the Office of the Conflict of Interest and Ethics Commissioner addressed to him, Pierre Poilievre, and Michael Cooper.

The letter confirms that Ethics Commissioner Mario Dion is examining whether Morneau is in contravention of section 23 of the Conflict of Interest Act. Dion will also be looking further into whether “monetary penalities are warranted” regarding failure to disclose a gift or to declare a recusal.

Morneau testified to the Standing Committee on Finance last Tuesday that he just wrote the WE Charity a cheque for $41,366 to repay expenses from family vacations to Kenya and Ecuador to learn more about the WE Charity.

Trudeau and his chief of staff are scheduled to testify before the Committee this coming Thursday.
