Liberals block misconduct report
Mr. Speaker, Parliament will rise this summer without receiving a report from the National Defence committee into sexual misconduct allegations plaguing our military.
Rather than facing tough questions of what transpired within the leadership of the Armed Forces on this government’s watch, Liberal members of the Defence Committee – empowered by their partisan chairperson – have instead filibustered, delayed and repeatedly suspended the committee to prevent a report from coming forward.
Our current meeting has been ongoing since mid-May!
To show how blatant and pathetic Liberals’ obstruction has become, Mr. Speaker, they have lately been filibustering their own amendment to a motion.
Anything to avoid a vote they know they will lose, instead of giving answers for Canadians.
Multiple defence reports are now casualties of this government’s partisan antics. Liberal members continue to place their party above the people, and especially above victims of misconduct in our military.
