OTTAWA — The federal NDP is urging the Conservative government to split its omnibus budget bill into at least five pieces of legislation so the sweeping policy changes can be further scrutinized.
The NDP held a news conference Monday morning to accuse the Tories of hiding from scrutiny on the budget bill that is more than 420 pages and includes major reforms to environmental protection, natural resource development, employment insurance and Old Age Security, just to name a few areas.
The official Opposition will ask the Harper government on Monday to carve up the budget bill so members of Parliament have the appropriate amount of time to review at committee legislation the NDP says will affect Canadians for generations.
