    "Will you comply with this motion?" She says "most defineley". If past committees looking into Liberal wrongdoing are any indication we can expect to see the blocking of witnesses and heavily redacted documents if they even give them up at all. These committees are a joke given the parliamentary rules that tie the hands of those trying to get at the truth. I have given up on my country. Pretty sad isn't it?

    Victory for Govt transparency in a democracy. 10 months into the pandemic and no budget for a year and a half, it’s time. Start with who shut down our world class early pandemic warning system in mid-2019, and consequences.

    The auditor general?…the same auditor general (along with the PBO) who has been trying to get information outta this government for over a year on 20000 missing infrastructure projects worth 10s of billions? Sounds like a "great" path forward

    The Liberals are squirming…the media is squirming. Things are about to get really bad

    I put it at 50/50 for Justin to knock on the GGs door 1 day before the docs are due, after failing to make it go away for until that time.

    Tic toc Justin…your dismal political career is coming to an end soon

    Liberals are afraid of such drastic measures as “public accountability” and “lawful oversight”.

    Time to investigate the government for hiding information to spread fear by intimidation and manipulation and for all the violations of the charter of rights.

    How bad of a deal did canada make that if the deal info goes public that the suppliers and pharma will back out of the deal?
