Con Minister who used search and rescue chopper for taxi calls CETA compensation 'slush fund'; my question in the Commons
I posed the following question today (Jan. 26) during Question Period in the House of Commons.
The Minister of Justice is saying Newfoundlanders and Labradorians are demanding a CETA "slush fund."
That`s coming from the Minister who used a military search and rescue helicopter to taxi him from a fishing trip.
It`s also not true.
What my province deserves is a quote "transition fund" for "development and renewal."
Because that's word for word that the Trade Minister's Chief of Staff and Minister of State for ACOA promised my province.
What won't the minister honour that promise?
