Allegations Embattled MP Ruby Dhalla is to appear today before a federal parliamentary committee and defend herself against allegations that foreign caregivers working at her family’s home were mistreated.
Dhalla’s testimony will follow that of the two caregivers at the heart of the allegations against her, including claims she withheld their passports and paid them only a fraction of the minimum wage.
Her appearance bumps Ontario Labour Minister Peter Fonseca, who was asked to participate in the proceeding and was expected to testify at the standing committee for citizenship and immigration in Ottawa today.
The two caregivers told their stories to Fonseca and Ontario Education Minister Kathleen Wynne during a roundtable discussion last month.
