Hansard and Statements by Senator Dennis Dawson

Hon. Dennis Dawson:

My question is for the Leader of the Government in the Senate. I wouldn’t want to give you the impression that you can get away with fake news. Those transition committees started before.

I am happy to salute your first year. I’m a little uncomfortable agreeing with the opposition; sometimes it happens. As you would know — and I wouldn’t want to give a bad impression — the transition started before you arrived. I wouldn’t want to give the impression to Canadians that it started because one year ago today you, Senator Pratte and Senator Sinclair arrived. The transition committees were formed before.
