Liberal MP Karina Gould admitted she didn’t disclose investment shares in a family business from two years ago until recently.

“In March 2020, I was given shares in a family company used for estate planning. I am not involved in how the company is set up or run. I disclosed the shares in my last ethics filing, and learned they should have been reported earlier,” MP Gould wrote in a Tweet.

According to Section 20 of the Conflict of Interest Code for Members of the House of Commons:

 A member shall file with the commissioner a full statement disclosing the member’s private interests and the private interests of the members of the member’s family within:

  (i) 60 days after the notice of his or her election to the House of Commons is published in the Canada Gazette; and

 (ii) 60 days after the date established by the commissioner for the annual review.

And for this clear violation of the Conflict of Interest Code, what will Minister Gould have to pay? A whole $250. That’s it.

“The shares are being put into a blind trust. I’ve paid a $250 fine and regret the oversight,” Gould wrote.

Of course, that a Liberal MP has found themselves in a questionable ethical position should come as no surprise. After all, their leader, PM Justin Trudeau, has racked up his own list of ethics violations throughout his political career.
