NDP House Leader Nathan Cullen discussed Thomas Mulcair's tour of the Alberta oilsands, the creation of a new hunting and angling advisory panel, and the claim by Natural Resources Minister Joe Oliver that tailings ponds created by oilsands development will one day be clean enough to drink from.

Interim Liberal Leader Bob Rae also spoke about minister Oliver's comments, as well as travel expenses for International Cooperation Minister Bev Oda that have been amended on her department's website, and the NDP leader's visit to Alberta.

NDP deputy Ethics critic Alexandre Boulerice commented on Bev Oda's travel expenses.

Green Party Leader Elizabeth May spoke to reporters about minister Oliver's claim about the tailings ponds and the Thomas Mulcair's visit out west.

NDP MP Pat Martin discussed the Conservative government's decision to repeal the Fair Wages and Hours of Labour Act, a measure that is contained in the budget implementation bill. The 1985 act compels contractors to pay workers fair wages and overtime on government construction projects.
