September 19, 2011

NDP finance critic Peggy Nash and interim Liberal leader Bob Rae comment on the Conservative government’s handling of the economy.

National Defence critics Jack Harris (NDP) and John McKay (Liberal) commented on the travel expenses for General Walter Natynczyk. The Chief of Defence Staff has spent over $1 million since 2008 to fly on government-owned Challenger jets.

Treasury Board President Tony Clement and NDP ethics critic Charlie Angus speak with reporters about the $50-million G8 Legacy Fund, which was established to create infrastructure for the June 2010 G8 Summit in Muskoka. The NDP allege that the funds were misappropriated and used to boost the profile of a prominent Conservative riding in southern Ontario.
