New documents have been filed that allege Pamela Wallin submitted 21 claims for travel expenses to the Senate – so she could claim reimbursement for her private and business trips – to Toronto and Guelph.
The allegations are spelled out in RCMP documents seeking a court order to compel Nesbitt Burns, Bell Media and the University of Guelph to produce all documentation related to Wallin’s expenses.
They are in addition to documents filed in court earlier this month by the Mounties – alleging that the disgraced senator defrauded the Senate by making 150 “suspicious” expense claims.
No charges have been laid against Wallin – who was suspended from the Senate last year.
None of the allegations have been proven in court.
Wallin sat on the advisory board for BMO Nesbitt Burns and served as an independent director for CTV Globemedia.
She also served as chancellor of the University of Guelph.
Wallin has been under investigation by the RCMP for the past 18 months.
