Mr. Speaker, it is simply absurd that a senator can get away with such a thing. The Senate's so-called honour system is not working.
It certainly never prevented Mike Duffy from playing his shell game over and over without any consequences. A system that allows such shenanigans to go on until someone is finally caught—that has to go.
Do the Conservatives think it is acceptable that Senator Duffy did not have to file his income tax return in the region he was supposed to be representing?
