TORONTO - Progressive Conservative Leader Tim Hudak says he has removed Peter Shurman from his position as finance critic.
Hudak said in a statement Sunday evening that he met with Shurman to discuss his accommodation expense claims.
It was revealed last week that Shurman, a Toronto-area member, billed the maximum $20,719 last year after moving to Niagara-on-the-Lake.
Shurman, who keeps an apartment in Toronto, said last week that he followed the rules when he claimed the money.
