Tories lose two ethics rulings

OTTAWA - With an election call possibly just weeks away, the Conservative government has suddenly found itself on its heels after devastating rulings from the Speaker that found the Tories have breached the privileges of MPs...NDP House leader Libby Davies said her party welcomed the rulings, noting the finding on costs is particularly important. "I think we have seen a government that has behaved in a very arrogant way on so many occasions, that they are withholding basic information that members of Parliament were elected to deal with. The ruling upholds that basic premise that in order for us to do our job, to represent the public interest, we need to have full information."
