Question Period - September 21, 2012

Debate opens with an exchange between Opposition House leader Nathan Cullen and Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird concerning CNOOC’s takeover bid for Nexen. Questions focus on an alleged lack of public consultation and on the criteria that guide government decisions about foreign investments.

There are also questions about the government’s climate-change plan, spending within the Department of National Defence, and a private member’s motion (M-312) calling for a reassessment of the definition of human life.
