The federal ethics commissioner says the use of Conservative Party logos on ceremonial funding cheques is inappropriate but not against the MPs' code of ethics or the Conflict of Interest Act.

Mary Dawson issued two reports Thursday — one on the code and one on the act — in response to dozens of complaints about the cheque logos last fall from opposition MPs and the public.

Conservative MPs and ministers were handing out large-sized ceremonial cheques with the Conservative Party logo on them, even though the money was from the government of Canada, the critics said.
