Opposition parties have been pressing on Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to resolve the way ministers and MP’s use public dollars as its now been disclosed that federal Health Minister Jane Philpott spent thousands of dollars on a Toronto-based limo company.
Philpott says she plans to pay back taxpayers for the thousands of dollars she spent.
She issued a statement on Thursday night to apologize for the “excessive costs” when she used the limo service to shuttle her around the GTA.
The limousine company is owned by a Liberal supporter who helps her canvass the Greater Toronto Area during the federal election in October 2015.
Philpott says she will repay $3,703.57,which was of the cost of using the limo service in the Toronto and Hamilton areas.
