Elections Canada drops case against Essex MP Jeff Watson
Elections Canada has dropped its case against Essex Conservative MP Jeff Watson.
The agency had alleged Watson overspent by almost $11,000 during his 2011 campaign.
However, Elections Canada dropped the case. It's been concluded as "'abandoned."
In a statement to CBC News, Watson said he made changes to his campaign filing last July, less than a month after CBC News first reported on the dispute.
