In Committee from the Senate of Canada - National Finance - January 28, 2015

Four agents of Parliament discuss their concerns with a private member’s bill that would require their current employees and potential hires to disclose any politically partisan position held within the past 10 years.
Senators hear from Auditor General Michael Ferguson, Privacy Commissioner Daniel Therrien, Official Languages Commissioner Graham Fraser, and Information Commissioner Suzanne Legault. They are among the nine Parliamentary watchdogs whose offices would be affected by the private member’s bill brought forward by Conservative MP Mark Adler. Anne-Marie Robinson, president of the Public Service Commission, also shares her concerns. (January 28, 2015)
