Question Period

November 22, 2013

Paul Calandra, the parliamentary secretary to Prime Minister Stephen Harper, continues to face a barrage of inquiries about revelations in RCMP documents related to the Senate expenses scandal. The documents suggest that Conservative senators and senior advisors to the prime minister attempted to interfere with a Deloitte audit into Senator Mike Duffy’s expenses. The government also faces questions about investments in First Nations education and an inquiry from independent MP Brent Rathgeber about government support for amendments to Bill C-461, the CBC and Public Service Disclosure and Transparency Act.
