Question Period

November 21, 2013

Opposition leader Thomas Mulcair and Paul Calandra (parliamentary secretary to Prime Minister Stephen Harper) continue to spar over the contents of court documents filed by the RCMP in the ongoing Senate expenses scandal. The documents, which include email correspondence between senators and senior staff in the Prime Minister’s Office, allege that an illegal payment was made to cover the expenses of Conservative Senator Mike Duffy. The government also faces questions about its greenhouse gas emissions reduction targets, rail safety protocols, and government assistance for veterans.
