Peter Shurman is the reason why the governing Liberals are proposing legislation to close housing expense loopholes, according to the Premier.
Kathleen Wynne underlines this has nothing to do with the Senate expense scandal in Ottawa.
The Tory MPP claimed over $20,000 is housing expenses after commuting from his home in Niagara-On-The-Lake to Queen's Park in Toronto. He represents the riding of Thornhill.
The new rules will make it so a housing allowance will only be offered to MPPs whose ridings are more than 50km away from the legislature.
Shurman lost his job as Progressive Conservative finance critic over this. He maintained he to the part and PC leader Tim Hudak about where he was living.
