Fun fact: Question Period is a forum for holding the government to account

by Aaron Wherry

Speaker Scheer seems to have adopted a very wide definition of what constitutes “the administrative responsibility of government” as it pertains to what questions can be asked during QP. A similar attack on the NDP was allowed yesterday.

In June, the Speaker ruled a Conservative question about the Liberal party’s approach to supply management to be out of order. (Last December, he ruled a Liberal question about robocalls to be out of order.)  I’m not sure I see a profound distinction between that question in June that was out of bounds and the two questions that the Speaker has allowed this week.

Fun fact: Question Period is a forum for holding the government to account

  1. Sometimes If you keep a dog on a leash long enough, you can untie the dog and it still won’t stray from the yard

  2. At what point is it legitimate to wonder about precisely Scheer’s primary loyalties lie? Or is it perhaps fairer to assume a certain level of incompetence in a man still young and inexperienced?
