Holding PM to Account for Shutting Down Parliament & Ignoring SK and AB

Senator Denise Batters delivers her Third Reading Speech in the Senate Chamber on Bill C-18, the Trudeau Government’s $55 billion Supply Bill. In this speech, she holds PM Trudeau to account for shutting down Parliament, pummeling through multi-billion bills with minimal or no parliamentary scrutiny, and ignoring western Canada’s needs (particularly with the oil & gas and agriculture sectors) throughout all of this.

Senator Batters tweeted this soon after she delivered this speech:
“Unexpectedly, I got emotional near the end. I kept thinking about all those in #Sask & #Alberta who are struggling right now. They had no cushion when #Covid19 hit. We can’t forget them.”
