Question Period - November 18, 2013

International Development Minister Christian Paradis outlines the government’s relief efforts for victims of Typhoon Haiyan, which struck the Philippines in early November. Paul Calandra (parliamentary secretary to Prime Minister Stephen Harper) faces a barrage of inquiries about documents supplied to the RCMP by the Prime Minister’s Office relating to the Senate expenses scandal. The documents suggest that a number of senators and senior advisors to the prime minister were aware of a deal to repay expenses incurred by Conservative Senator Mike Duffy. Mr. Calandra also faces a number of questions about an Elections Canada investigation into alleged fraud during the 2011 federal election.
