IN THE HOUSE ~ Member's Statement - Time for Canadians to get answers from this Conservative government

    Mr. Peter Julian (Burnaby—New Westminster, NDP): Mr. Speaker, in the words of the newly independent member for Edmonton—St. Albert, the Conservative Party of Canada has "morphed into what we once mocked" .

    First, we learned of a secret $90,000 payout orchestrated by the PMO. Now, we hear troubling allegations of a secret slush fund controlled by the Prime Minister's Chief of Staff. They have improper Senate expense claims, a cover-up orchestrated by the PMO, fraudulent election calls, Elections Canada trying to remove two Conservative MPs and now allegations of a secret fund controlled by the PM's former Chief of Staff, Nigel Wright.

    While our leader has repeatedly asked direct questions, the Prime Minister refuses to give straight answers. No wonder the MP for Edmonton—St. Albert resigned; the Conservatives have a "lack of support for transparency and open government".

    The Prime Minister can take the "air force run" to Europe, but he cannot hide. The NDP will keep asking tough questions because Canadians deserve to have answers.
