Question Period - November 22, 1995

1st Session—35th Parliament

Prime Minister Jean Chrétien continues to face questions about national unity in the aftermath of October 30, 1995, Quebec referendum on sovereignty; inquiries focus on proposed constitutional reforms, the mandates of two special cabinet committees, and perceived biases in CBC/Radio-Canada coverage of the referendum campaign. Later, David Anderson (Minister of National Revenue) is asked about reported problems with the new ‘E-file’ method of filing tax returns, while Lloyd Axworthy (Minister of Employment and Immigration) responds to inquiries about federal job training programs.
