The government’s attempt at electoral reform, and the opposition’s various misgivings about the legislation’s true intent, energized most of Question Period. Pierre Poilievre, the Minister of Democratic Reform, took centre stage for the first time since his prior stint as the prime minister’s occasional stand-in during QP. Later in the week, NDP Leader Tom Mulcair warned the government not to go after public servants’ benefits, and the government remained unmoved. Julian Fantino, the veterans’ affairs minister, was probably happy for the distractions.
