Residents have accused a Conservative MP, who intends to run in a different riding in 2015, to have used her taxpayer-funded privileges and supplies to mail voters in a new constituency. Several residents from Burlington and Oakville, Ont., have confirmed to have received materials from Eve Adams, even though the current MP in the area is Transport Minister Lisa Raitt.
In response to the allegations, Adams stated that she has not broken any House of Commons rules and stressed that she is entitled as an MP to mail materials outside of her riding. Adams is anticipated to compete with a local chiropractor, Natalia Lishchyna, for the Conservative nomination in Oakville-North Burlington, i.e. a newly created riding that technically won’t exist until the next election. However, the main question to ask is whether if she is using her resources to help secure a nomination.
