    0

    OTTAWA, Province of Ontario: Canada’s Senate on Tuesday asked federal police to investigate one of their own after an audit uncovered some “troubling” travel expense claims, amid growing calls to abolish the upper chamber. The Senate’s internal economy committee also asked the target of the audit, Senator Pamela Wallin, a former television journalist and diplomat, to repay more than Can$120,000 ($116,000) claimed for airfare, hotels and cab rides, plus interest. Wallin has already pledged to pay back the monies, but disputed the audit process, calling it “flawed and fundamentally unfair.” She also rejected allegations that she tried to mislead auditors by adjusting entries in her electronic calendar.
