The Conservative Party may have problems of its own when it comes to inappropriate taxpayer-funded mailings, according to documents obtained by CBC News.
In recent months the Tories have been highly critical of the NDP over its use of parliamentary mailings that were deemed too partisan.
The issue with the Conservative mailings is expected to be raised at a meeting of the secretive Board of Internal Economy committee Tuesday.
But a final report prepared for the committee by House of Commons administration shows there are at least 20 mailings by Conservative MPs that raise questions.
The report says 10 Conservative MPs mailed materials that directed people to a website other than their own parliamentary website with the use of a QR code, a type of barcode that can be scanned by devices such as smartphones. The report says the code directed readers to a Conservative Party website.
