Scrums

November 3, 2011

Liberal leader Bob Rae spoke to reporters about why the party boycotted a vote in the House of Commons regarding Canada’s next auditor general. The Conservatives used their majority to pass a motion confirming the appointment of Michael Ferguson.

NDP Official Languages critic Yvon Godin also discussed Ferguson’s appointment, which the party caucus voted against.

Interim NDP Caucus Chair Peter Julian responded to questions about the cancelled Greek referendum, the comments made by fellow New Democrat MP Joe Comartin regarding Supreme Court Justice Marshall Rothstein’s lack of French, and the party’s position on the long-gun registry bill.
