The Conservative governing body is asking why the expenses filed to it by the office of former leader Andrew Scheer are roughly $700,000 over their usual amount.

Multiple party sources tell Global News the usual expenses submitted from the leader's office to the Conservative National Council sit in the range of about $200,000 per fiscal year – but that in its last financial statement, Scheer's office expenses came in at over $900,000 for the last fiscal year.

The expenses were discovered by a member of the National Council who noticed while at a meeting that they appeared to be substantially higher than expected.
