One less investigation, what’s left?

The Senate Ethics Office suspends her review of the Wright-Duffy affair

by

Because the Senate’s internal economy committee has referred the matter to the RCMP, the Senate Ethics Officer has halted her investigation of the controversy around Mike Duffy’s expenses.

The ethics commissioner’s investigation continues, but, again, it is unclear how the commissioner’s mandate applies to what Nigel Wright did.

Otherwise there are the RCMP, two order paper questions filed by Justin Trudeau and an access to information request filed by the Liberals to which one might pin their hopes for greater clarity. Or perhaps Mr. Wright and Mr. Duffy will decide to explain themselves publicly at some point.
