Question Period

November 20, 2013

Opposition leader Thomas Mulcair continues his interrogation of Prime Minister Stephen Harper concerning court documents filed by the RCMP in the ongoing Senate expenses scandal. The documents allege that Nigel Wright (Mr. Harper’s former chief of staff) acted illegally by writing a $90,000 cheque to Conservative Senator Mike Duffy. Questions from Mr. Mulcair and from Liberal leader Justin Trudeau focus on Mr. Harper’s knowledge of the cheque and on email correspondence between Mr. Wright and other senior advisors to the prime minister. The day’s other topics of debate include affordable housing services and new legislation on cyberbullying.
