On June 6th, NDP (Mr. Altemeyer) and Tory (Ms Squires) MLAs debated about who has created the bigger scandal. The transcript from Hansard is below
Under regulations, which I table here in the House, this government has now removed the requirement for a fish dealer to pay a fisher within seven days. That's their response to the enormous scandal and fiasco occurring in the Interlake fishery business after they got rid of the single desk.
You cannot imagine, Madam Speaker, anyone in a business–a farmer, hog farmer, cattle rancher–not having a requirement that they get paid for what they are delivering.
How on earth can this minister and this government pretend they care at all about the welfare of thousands of fishers in Manitoba?
Ms. Squires: Madam Speaker, flying down to Mexico and sticking taxpayers with a $5,000 cellphone bill, that is an enormous scandal. Learning that your environment plan will not meet its targets and ignoring that for five years, not updating your plan for five years, that is an enormous scandal. Proposing a $300 price on carbon tax, this is an enormous scandal.
I would say this member is an expert in enormous scandals.
