Cuzner Blames High Air Fares for High Expenses
Cape Breton-Canso MP Rodger Cuzner is blaming the high cost of flying out of Sydney for his posting of the second highest expenses of all Liberal MP’s.
Cuzner racked up more than 23,200 dollars in expenses from October 1 to December 31st of last year.
Most of the expenses were for flights from Cape Breton to Ottawa to attend Parliament.
Cuzner says he compared the expenses of Nova Scotia Liberal MP’s Geoff Regan and Scott Brison and adds the biggest difference is the cost of flights going from Halifax to Sydney.
Meanwhile, Sydney-Victoria Liberal MP Mark Eyking incurred just over 19-thousand dollars in expenses over the same period.
