Interim Liberal leader Bob Rae has officially requested that Elections Canada investigate the campaign spending of current Labrador MP Peter Penashue during the 41st general election.
In a letter, released to the media early Sunday afternoon, Rae states recent reports made by the media, if true, could have compromised the results in a closely contested race.
"While I have no doubt that Elections Canada continues to review Mr. Penashue's campaign return, it seems clear to me that there is enough public evidence to warrant the commencement of a formal investigation by you as Commissioner," wrote Rae.
