Question Period - February 28, 2014

The government is asked about its response to ongoing political unrest in Ukraine, including the Russian occupation of two major airports in Crimea. Pierre Poilievre (minister of state for democratic reform) fields a number of questions about the government’s Fair Elections Act (Bill C-23), focusing on an alleged lack of public consultations.

Additional topics of debate include criticisms of the 2014 federal budget and renewed calls for a national inquiry into murdered and missing Aboriginal women following the murder of Loretta Saunders, and Inuk woman from Labrador.
