Dear Editor:

Kudos to Kelowna-Lake Country Liberal MP Stephen Fuhr for not filing any “designated traveller” expenses during his first term in office, choosing instead, to pay for his partner or son's travel out of his own pocket (Courier, Sept. 18).

Contrast that with North Okanagan-Shuswap Conservative MP Mel Arnold who claimed more than $121,000 in spousal travel in his first term in office. On television lately, Andrew Scheer talks about families keeping more money in their pockets. I'm wondering how this incredible abuse of our taxpayers' dollars fits in with that plan.
