My fellow New Democrat,
And there was nowhere left to hide.
Asking direct, no nonsense questions, New Democrat leader Tom Mulcair refused to let Stephen Harper off the hook for Conservative Senate scandals and ethical lapses.
New Democrats are asking simple, straightforward questions – but Stephen Harper can’t answer them.
He can’t answer why Conservative senator Mike Duffy claimed $90,000 in false travel expenses from Canadian taxpayers. Or why the prime minister’s own chief of staff wrote a personal cheque to cover the bogus expense claims after Duffy was ordered to pay them back.
You and I both know it’s time to abolish the unelected, unaccountable Senate and put an end to its ever-growing list of scandals.
In less than one week, over 15,000 Canadians sent a clear message by signing our petition to abolish the Senate, and roll up the red carpet once and for all.
We can’t let Stephen Harper sweep another Senate scandal under the rug.
