The survey, conducted by Nanos Research for The Globe and Mail, shows that 73 percent of Canadians find the practice unacceptable, and 16 percent find it somewhat unacceptable.

Records from the Office of the Conflict of Interest and Ethics Commissioner show that since 2007, MPs have taken close to 1,000 sponsored trips, with over 95 percent to foreign countries.
