Public disclosure statements for Members of Provincial Parliament have been filed with the Clerk of the Legislative Assembly, the Office of the Integrity Commissioner announced today. The statements reflect each MPP’s holdings as of Sept. 1, 2010.
All members are required to disclose their sources of income, assets and liabilities in a statement filed each year with the Integrity Commissioner. Through the Fall each MPP met with Integrity Commissioner Lynn Morrison to discuss their statement. As stipulated by the Members’ Integrity Act, 1994, the Commissioner is required to publicly disclose certain information from the MPP’s private disclosure statement. The public disclosure statements also include details on any gifts received with a value in excess of $200.
“The meetings have been helpful and informative,” said Commissioner Morrison. “I have found that the issues and challenges of elected office are growing more complex. These one-on-one meetings give us an opportunity to discuss their concerns in detail and in confidence. I am grateful for the continued cooperation and support from all members.”
The public disclosure statements are available at www.oico.on.ca. They can also be viewed in the Office of the Clerk, Legislative Building, Queen’s Park, Toronto, Ont., M7Z 1A2.
