Interim Liberal Leader Bob Rae has criticized her, mentioning the need for "honesty and character" in good government. It's in this area that Oda seems repeatedly to stumble.
If there's doo-doo around, she'll step in it.
At the moment she's under fire for switching to the ultra-fancy Savoy hotel during a conference in London last June on immunization of poor children.
It seems the hotel where the Canadian group was booked, and where the conference was held, was a non-smoking hotel, and Oda smokes like a chimney. Her three days at the Savoy cost $1,995. Her glass of orange juice cost $16.
After the opposition raised hell, Oda repaid the room cost difference of $1,353.81, then Thursday followed with the $1,000 in limousine costs. In the Commons on Tuesday she admitted her expenses were "unacceptable, should never have been charged to taxpayers," and that "I unreservedly apologize."
What rubbish! Sure, she's sorry - sorry she got caught.
She was also sorry, back in 2006, when she paid back $2,200 after it was discovered she's expensed $5,500 in limo rides at the Juno Awards in Halifax. Again, in 2008, she was accused of hiding some $17,000 in limo expenses billed to taxpayers.
