    This is pointless. If the left didnt infect every facet of Canadian institutions, this would be a smart move. However, it will come down to leftist zealots investigating leftist zealots and coming to the conclusion that leftist zealots did nothing wrong.

    Okay, just black out where there is confidentiality of contract and release the rest (National security). These are documents that are available and just show to other MPs of the committee. The opposition have a right to participate and check the facts. Nothing wrong

    Why don’t the liberals want the opposition to ask questions about health spending? Don’t tell me they have more to cover up.

    Conservative's always go on about "whataboutisms" but… thats literally what Michelle Remple just did. Someone should tell her that she doesn't ALWAYS have to be on the attack. It makes her and her party look desperate. Someone should also inform her that we are still in the middle of a pandemic and the 50% "under utilization" rate might possibly be so yanno.. peole don't get sick.

    She really is bad at her job. :/

    David Hurley, if the government wasn’t so corrupt, perhaps we wouldn’t need oversight. And I’m sure all other governments had a budget. So why not oversight on the trillions being spent.

    They took too long to close the border to China back in January, and then to Iran and Italy. Liberal government was too slow to react

    "You can spin the Liberal lies." Yep, that pretty much sums up the state controlled CBC. De-fund the CBC.
