David Sweet

Conservative MP David Sweet resigned as chair of the House of Commons ethics committee after travelling to the U.S. over the holidays.

The office of Conservative Leader Erin O’Toole said Monday that Sweet was one of two Tory MPs who were given approval by the party’s whip to undertake “essential travel” to the United States.

Sweet, who represents the Hamilton-area riding of Flamborough-Glanbrook, travelled south of the border for an unspecified “property issue.” But O’Toole’s office said Sweet then decided to stay “for leisure” without informing the whip.
