June 5, 2015

Paul Calandra (Parliamentary Secretary to the Prime Minister) responds to renewed inquiries about the ongoing Senate expenses controversy; questions focus on the possible implication of the Senate speaker, the alleged interference of the Prime Minister’s Office in an independent audit of senators’ expenses, and the contents of an upcoming report by the Auditor General of Canada. The government also faces questions about recommendations made by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada and allegations that $1-billion in federal funding for First Nations has gone unspent.
