Why Parliament Matters

June 3, 2020

The Liberals have effectively shut down parliamentary debate at one of the most critical times in Canada’s history. We are closing in on $1 trillion in debt and the Liberals allowed only four hours to review the government’s COVID-19 spending plan, an action the independent Parliamentary Budget Officer has criticized. On The Blueprint, host Jamie Schmale speaks with Michael Chong, Conservative Shadow Minister for Democratic Institutions, via Skype to discuss the implications of the Liberals circumventing parliamentary democracy.

Join host and Member of Parliament Jamie Schmale for a look at the hottest topics hitting Canada’s political landscape, and how they might impact Canadians.
