The Conservative leader in the Senate took a personal trip to Mexico shortly after Christmas, even though party Leader Erin O’Toole asked all caucus members to refrain from international travel over the holidays.
Whether Plett will face any penalty for travelling briefly to Mexico remains to be seen. His fate rests with his fellow Conservative senators, who elect their Senate leader.
A spokesperson said the senator travelled to Mexico on Dec. 28.
Upon his arrival, the spokesperson said Plett “reflected on his decision to travel” and immediately made arrangements to return home to Manitoba on Dec. 31.
