Opposition blocks travel

Lemieux in happier times

Pierre Lemieux, Parliamentary secretary to Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz and MP for Glengarry–Prescott–Russell, is ticked that the Liberal and New Democratic Party members of the agriculture committee voted against a proposal to spend 40 hours travelling Canada to talk to people about co-operatives.

Thank goodness!

Why should Canadian taxpayers fund a vacation jaunt for MPs?

I don't think there's a single idea about co-operatives they would hear out in the boonies that they won't hear during their committee deliberations.
