Question Period

March 21, 2013

The government faces a barrage of questions about Peter Penashue, the former minister of intergovernmental affairs and Conservative MP for Labrador, who resigned following an investigation by Elections Canada into his 2011 campaign. Kellie Leitch (parliamentary secretary to the minister of Human Resources and Skills Development) comments on changes to Employment Insurance eligibility criteria. Kennedy Stewart (the Opposition critic for science and technology) asks Gary Goodyear (minister of state for science and technology) about what Mr. Stewart calls the government’s “war on science.”
