Filipino politician in Canada failed to pay property taxes

This one via the Vancouver Sun:

“One in four Conservative MLAs accepted freebies in 2009, and Carl Benito failed to pay his property taxes, a new government report shows.

Ethics Commissioner Neil Wilkinson on Monday released updated copies of MLAs’ public disclosure statements, which detail gifts over $400 and show potential conflicts of interest.

Seventeen of Alberta’s 68 Conservative MLAs accepted gifts and travel, ranging from concert tickets to fishing trips, from rounds of golf and helicopter rides to hotel rooms. None of the 15 opposition members accepted travel or gifts.”
