CBC News also asked Scheer to clarify exactly what his role was in this office.

He said his job was "supporting the whole team … answering questions from customers and clients and doing preparatory work." He added that he would also explain and pass on information to people coming into the office.

When CBC News suggested this meant he'd never actually worked as a broker, Scheer said that although he (eventually) received his accreditation under the Canadian Accredited Insurance Broker Program, "at this particular office, the licensed brokers finalized all the transactions."

Conrad Shenher, who owned the insurance firm where Scheer worked and is now retired, told CBC News in a phone call that he doesn't remember what Scheer's duties were because it was so long ago.

Ron Fullan, executive director of the insurance councils, confirmed receipt of Mendicino's letter.

"We are currently reviewing it. At this point, we have no further comment on the issue."

Rick Salutin: Andrew Scheer and the fading dimples strategy .
Video transcript: “It’s no big deal,” said Andrew Scheer about whether he was a fully deputized insurance broker, or has dual citizenship. But the deal, I’d say, was that they undermined the dimples factor. He’s basically been running on them. Anything he said that might seem aggressive — like liar, fraud fake — would sound harsh from Stephen Harper. Scheer’s dimples have simply swallowed them up. He was like Sweetface in “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.”His core message wasn’t “I’m gonna put more money in your pocket.” It was, Nothing offensive here. But the dimples barrier was showing cracks, even before the debate.
