Question Period

November 28, 2008

Ted Menzies (parliamentary secretary to the minister of finance) faces an onslaught of questions about the government’s fiscal update. Questions focus largely on reductions in public sector wage increases, the estimated federal deficit, and on the proposed elimination of a taxpayer subsidy to political parties. Additional topics of debate include pay equity, an ongoing Canada Post strike, and job losses within the forest and mining industries.
