Question Period

October 19, 2012

Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird faces questions about provisions in the government’s 450-page budget implementation bill, including changes to the Navigable Waters Protection Act. There are also calls to split those changes from the budget bill for a separate legislative review.

Other topics of debate include the CRTC’s rejection of Bell’s takeover bid for Astral Media and the government’s commitment to assisting refugees fleeing the Syrian civil war.
