On June 6th, during Question Period the NDP (Mr. Altemeyer) and Tory (Ms.. Squires) got into a debate about who is best at saying one thing and doing another. The transcript from Hansard is below:
Mr. Rob Altemeyer (Wolseley): Madam Speaker, we have documented on no small number of occasions instances where this government is saying one thing and doing quite the other. What we now have evidence of is that this also extends to existing Manitoba law.
The regulation under The Fisheries Act, section 13.2, states, and I quote: A licensed fish dealer who purchases fish from a fisher must pay the fisher no later than seven days after the date of the sale. End quote.
Fishers in the Interlake of Manitoba are still waiting for their money, and yet this minister has taken no action. What is she doing to protect the rights of fishers to get paid for their fish here in Manitoba?
Hon. Rochelle Squires (Minister of Sustainable Development): Madam Speaker, this member opposite, he talks about saying one thing and doing another, something him and his NDP caucus know much about. We had an agreement on the House session; they broke it and we're here to–we're going to make them hold to account for that.
