Scrums - February 16, 2012

NDP immigration critic Don Davies, Liberal deputy leader Ralph Goodale, Liberal House leader Marc Garneau, and Bloc Québécois MP Jean-François Fortin reacted to the government's new refugee bill, which targets bogus refugee claims.

Veterans Affairs Minister Stephen Blaney, NDP deputy justice critic Françoise Boivin, and Bloc Québécois MP Jean-François Fortin spoke to reporters about the end of the long-gun registry. MPs voted last night 159-130 in favour of dismantling the registry. Bill C-19 now heads to the Senate, where the Conservatives also have a majority.

NDP finance critic Peter Julian discussed his pre-budget meeting today with Finance Minister Jim Flaherty.

Goodale, Garneau, and Green Party leader Elizabeth May reacted to reports that CSIS and the RCMP consider Greenpeace and PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals ) to be potential threats to national security.
