Winnipeg Sun: NEWS - Pressure on senator

Winnipeg Sun: NEWS - Pressure on senator: "OTTAWA -- A Liberal Senator from Quebec is under pressure to resign or give up his corporate interests linked to a lucrative government lease deal.
Paul Massicotte will be called before the Commons government operations committee to explain his role in a rent contract that swallowed $575,000 a month for an office building that sat vacant for nearly a year.
The former Liberal fundraiser was appointed to the Senate by former prime minister Jean Chretien in 2003.
Conservative MP Pierre Poilievre hopes Massicotte's appearance, expected in early June, will lend more public scrutiny to the agreement and help hold the government to account. "
