There’s a new sheriff in town


In responding this afternoon to a question from the NDP’s Pat Martin, Conservative David Anderson suggested that Mr. Martin had, in the past, made a “fool of himself.”

At this the Speaker cut Mr. Anderson off and called on the next questioner to rise.

After Question Period, Mr. Anderson rose on a point of order and apologized. This was duly applauded by members on all sides.
