Footage of Mondays question period in Parliament

Check this out, scroll to time: 32:50 to watch the governments response to the sponsorship scandal:

Click here for footage

Some high lights:

Opposition Leader Stepen Harper:

"They have the gall to depict the Liberal Party as the victim of the sponsorship scandal...will the Government at least have the decency to simply admit that the only victim is the Canadian taxpayer whose money was stolen?"

"The judge, the police, and Canadians, will be the judge of how involved the Liberals were [involved in the sponsorship scandal]"

"Last week Canadians finally learned the details of the brutal torture and murder of journalist Sara Kazemi [sic] in Iran, now it turns out for months, the Prime Minister knew the true extent of the brutality inflicted upon Ms. Kazemi. Instead of taking a firm stand against IRAN he sent our ambassador back to that oppressive regime. What kind of callous, spineless government re-establishes normal, diplomatic relations with this kind of regime?

Prime Minister Paul Martin:

"Mr. Speaker, let me respond to the preamble, the fact is Mr. Speaker...the Canadians should have the facts and that is why I called for the Gomery Commision...and thats why there should not be an election...because canadians deserve to the facts" (runs out of time).

Speaker: "Im afraid the right honorable Prime Minister used up all his time responding to the preamble."

Opposition Leader Stepen Harper:

"Mr Speaker, let me just say, that was a perfect example of what is wrong with this government, it should have used the opportunity to defend a [murdered] Canadian citizen, not the Liberal party!!"
