Liberal Leader Bob Rae said police are free to investigate the matter once it is in the media, but it may not be necessary in this case.
"If you find that a mistake was made or you find that there was a genuine misunderstanding of what the rules were and how they were to be applied, there are many situations in the workplace as well as elsewhere where people say ‘Well, this doesn’t look to us like a police matter,’ " he said.
Why has the Conservative Party been taken to court over "In and Out".
It's a simple thing - if it's illegal, then it should be prosecuted. One would think, however, that racking up 5 years of rental expenses (at about 20Gs per year) would be more than a "misunderstanding". Maybe some of the MPs who "misinterpreted" SHOULD be punished in warning to the rest of their colleagues.
