Question Period - October 18, 2012


Finance Minister Jim Flaherty faces a slew of questions about provisions in the 450-page budget bill, including calls to split provisions in the bill into separate legislation.

Pierre Poilievre (parliamentary secretary to the minister of transport, infrastructure and communities) is asked about controversy surrounding expenditures by Peter Penashue (Minister of Intergovernmental Affairs) during the 2011 general election. The government also faces questions about delays in the recall of E. coli–tainted beef from XL Foods in September 2012.
