Tributes to the Late Deepak Obhrai – December 11, 2019

MPs Scott Reid (Conservative), Rob Oliphant (Liberal), Louis Plamondon (Bloc Québécois), and Brian Masse (NDP) pay tribute in the House of Commons to the late Deepak Obhrai, the longtime Alberta MP who died on August 2 after a battle with cancer. The speakers all wear scarves in honour of Obhrai’s trademark accessory.

The Conservative MP for Calgary Forest Lawn was first elected in 1997 and was dean of the party’s caucus. He was also the first Hindu elected to the House of Commons.
