Saanich-Gulf Islands Green MP Elizabeth May is threatening to hold up a vote on the Conservatives’ sweeping budget bill for days if the prime minister won’t consider breaking it up into related items.
May said the federal government’s sweeping budget bill – which includes changes affecting everything from Old Age Pensions to oversight of the Canadian Security Intelligence Agency – would change Canada’s environmental regulations, laws and policies for the worse.
“I think all of us in the Opposition ranks are scandalized by the effort to hide so much within the 425-page Budget Implementation Act,” May said.
