Question Period - February 4, 2014


Prime Minister Stephen Harper faces questions about the alleged gathering of metadata from private communications by CSEC (the Communications Security Establishment) at a Canadian airport. The allegations, first revealed in a CBC News report, are based on documents obtained by American whistleblower Edward Snowden.

Pierre Poilievre (the minister of state for democratic reform) responds to a series of inquiries about Bill C-23, the Fair Elections Act. The legislation proposes a number of changes to the mandate of Elections Canada.

The government also faces questions about support for veterans’ services, the laying of charges against Patrick Brazeau and Mac Harb in the ongoing investigation into Senate expenses, and the delayed release of a 2011 National Energy Board report criticizing inspections of the TransCanada pipeline.
