Questions Over Visitor’s Pro-Oil & Gas T-Shirt

Internal Economy, Budgets and Administration – September 5, 2019:

Senators discuss a recent incident where a man was allegedly asked by security to leave a tour of the Senate building unless he turned his ‘I Heart Canadian Oil & Gas’ t-shirt inside out, as he was told the shirt’s message was potentially offensive. Answering questions from senators is Julie Lacroix from the Senate’s corporate security directorate.

Senators also debate whether a discussion over the Senate’s resolution process for harassment complaints should be held in public or in camera.
