PETERBOROUGH, Ont. - A complaint has been filed with Ontario's integrity commissioner against Progressive Conservative MPP Laurie Scott.

It was filed by Liberal Phil McNeely, who alleges Scott was using her website to promote both constituency services and the Haliburton Kawartha Lakes Brock PC Riding Association.

Members of the Provincial Parliament are not allowed to use publicly-funded websites to advertise partisan events.

McNeely is calling on the integrity commissioner to conduct a thorough investigation.
