Question Period

March 6, 2014

Debate opens with questions about the delayed delivery of grain from Western provinces by rail. Later, Pierre Poilievre (minister of state for democratic reform) faces a renewed onslaught of inquires about the Fair Elections Act (Bill C-23), including criticisms raised by Chief Electoral Officer Mark Mayrand during a parliamentary committee hearing on the bill. Justice Minister Peter MacKay continues to face demands for a national inquiry into cases of missing and murdered Aboriginal women.

The day’s debate also includes comments about illegal lobbying activities allegedly carried out by the prime minister’s former chief advisor.
