Question Period - October 1, 2012

Opposition leader Thomas Mulcair and Liberal leader Bob Rae open debate with questions about the September 16, 2012, recall of beef processed at an XL Foods facility in Brooks, Alta. Their inquiries focus on alleged spending cuts to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency and on delays in the government’s response to E. coli contamination at the XL facility.

In recognition of the second annual National Seniors Day, opposition MPs pose questions about old-age pension security and other issues affecting seniors. The government also faces allegations of underfunding in key public safety sectors, including border services, airline safety inspections, and search-and-rescue services.
