Mr. Peter Julian (Burnabyâ€”New Westminster, NDP): Mr. Speaker, in the words of the newly independent member for Edmontonâ€”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.
