Embattled Senator Mike Duffy — who represents Cavendish, PEI — has just released the following statement:
“As a Prince Edward Islander, born and bred, I am proud to represent my province and its interests in the Senate of Canada.
“I represent taxpayers with care, and Canadians know I would never do anything to betray the public trust.
“I have a home in Prince Edward Island as required by law. I will have no further comment until this review is complete.”
