Opposition presses for answers on MP Raj Grewal s gambling debts

OTTAWA -- The House of Commons ethics committee has voted down a motion from opposition members to hear from the Privy Council clerk about who knew what and when concerning MP Raj Grewal s gambling habit.

Grewal is considering his future in politics as he takes a leave to deal with what he calls a compulsive gambling problem that caused him to rack up millions of dollars in debt.

The MP for the Toronto-area riding of Brampton East says he has fully repaid his debts and is now rethinking a hasty decision to resign from the House, though he is no longer a member of the Liberal caucus.

Word of Grewal s gambling debts also surfaced in a much broader police probe into other people suspected of money laundering and terrorist financing, the source said.
