TORONTO — The Ontario NDP is joining a growing chorus of left-of-centre parties questioning the residency status of Jason Kenney during his time as a federal minister and MP.

Last week, Ontario Liberal MP Jennifer O'Connell asked the Speaker of the House to investigate whether Kenney misused the expense system by claiming Calgary as his primary residence despite seldom visiting the city. The allegations were first brought forward by former Alberta Liberal candidate Kyle Morrow.

Kenney has denied them, and his representatives argue they are no House of Commons rules barring MPs from claiming expenses for a secondary residence in or near their riding.
