OTTAWA - The Conservative party has admonished MP Eve Adams for her behaviour in a heated nomination battle, but she is not being barred from the race.
The party's governing body issued letters to Adams and to the riding association president of the Oakville North-Burlington following a conference call.
Sources say that in the letter to Adams, party president John Walsh calls her behaviour during a March riding association meeting unacceptable.
Fourteen party members had complained that Adams was abusive and refused to leave when asked repeatedly.
The party is also asking Adams to provide an accounting of how much she has spent to win the nomination in the riding, where she is competing against local chiropractor Natalia Lischyna.
The value of any nomination work done by her fiance Dimitri Soudas, former executive director of the party, will also be taken into account.
