Tory robo-calls point man denies exceeding campaign-spending li
The chief defender of the Conservative Party’s conduct in the robo-calls scandal is rejecting opposition calls to step down in the wake of revelations he is under investigation by Elections Canada for allegedly exceeding campaign spending limits.
Both the Liberals and NDP are calling for Dean Del Mastro to resign his post as parliamentary secretary to the Prime Minister while he’s the subject of a probe by the elections watchdog.
Mr. Del Mastro is reportedly under investigation by Elections Canada for allegedly exceeding his campaign spending limit in the 2008 election by $17,000. But he denies breaking election law.
