A special summer update episode of The Blueprint with host and Member of Parliament Tony Clement. This week, Tony chats about how Conservative MPs spend their summer months, while the House of Commons is in recess, and provides an update on some local activities in Parry Sound – Muskoka, Ontario. Questions for Justin Trudeau continue to swirl amid the fallout of his secretive payout to Omar Khadr, while Conservative MPs are poised to raise Justin Trudeau’s decision to offer a reported $10.5 million of taxpayer dollars to a convicted terrorism when the House of Commons resumes in September. And new reports indicate that registered lobbyists – including people registered to lobby the Prime Minister’s Office – continue to attend Justin Trudeau’s cash-for-access fundraising events, where wealthy individuals can pay for face-time with the PM.
