Mr. Speaker, Canadians are watching in disbelief as a desperate PMO is resorting to pitbull tactics to cover up scandals within its own caucus.
The member for Nepean—Carleton seems to be the Conservative point man to sweep under the carpet 125 instances where Conservative Party candidates received loans for their campaigns in the last election.
There are 19 Conservative candidates who still have loans outstanding from the last election.
According to Elections Canada, three Conservatives had donations exceeding the limit of $5,400 per donor.
Talk about hypocrisy: the Conservatives take the cake on hypocrisy.
I suggest that the member for Nepean—Carleton ask why the PMO is hanging him out to dry by asking him to support the violations of his Conservative colleagues.
