This week in ministerial accountability


 

While Tony Clement was more than happy on Monday to talk to reporters outside the House about the G8 Legacy Fund, he continues to remain seated when opposition members rise to inquire about the matter during Question Period. And with John Baird away from the House of Commons, opposition questions directed at Mr. Clement are now being handled by Deepak Obhrai, the parliamentary secretary to the Minister of Foreign Affairs. Mr. Obhrai is an able reader of the government’s preferred lines, but his exact level of responsibility for the administering of the G8 Legacy Fund is unclear.
