Public Consultation on the Harper Budget
May 15th, 2012 - 5:48pm
New Democrats announced today that they will take the study of the sweeping Conservative budget implementation bill to the public, holding a series of hearings in Ottawa and across the country. MP Irene Mathyssen will be hosting a hearing for her constituents in London:
- Tuesday May 22nd
- Community Meeting Room
- Constituency Office of Irene Mathyssen
- 1700-D Dundas St.
"The government seems scared of oversight and of public scrutiny," says Mathyssen. "If the government won’t let us do our job in parliament then we have to take it outside, we have to take it to the public directly. One way or another we are going to ensure that Canadians know what this government is trying to keep behind closed doors".
