End of Parliamentary Session marked by Harper`s Secretive Plans

13 July 2021 at 14h57

I just finished the parliamentary session in Ottawa while enduring the heatwave and studying such complex issues as the creation of a new type of credit union (128 pages) and the privatization of Atomic Energy of Canada Limited. The 24 amended laws were buried within the 900 pages of the Budget Act. Heresy!


The Senate National Finance committee which I was exceptionally a member, sat for 61 hours, heard 122 witnesses and tabled its report in the Upper House last night by removing the proposed amendments to the most contentious laws, having lost the majority of seats in the Senate, we could not convince our fellow Conservatives to return to better democratic practices, i.e. consulting Canadians on important issues.

 

 Follow this closely in the fall. In the meantime, I wish you a good summer and invite you to consult my site regularly during the summer as I will be updating regularly.

 

Feel free to write to me about your ideas, concerns and solutions so we can be ready to hold the conservatives to account.

 

Yours truly,

 

The Honourable Céline Hervieux-Payette P.C.

Senator
