Opposition Motion (July 12, 2020)

M. Angus (Timmins - James Bay) - That, whereas there is a culture of Ethical Permissiveness around the Prime Minister; and whereas the Prime Minister has twice been found to be in contravention of the Conflict of Interest Act and is under investigation for a third potential breach; and whereas the Prime Minister's Office thus appears to lack the capability or inclination to adequately advise the Prime Minister with respect to the avoidance of conflicts of interest or the appearance of conflicts of interest in compliance with Canadian law, the Committee move that pursuant to Standing Order 108(1)(a), the Committee undertake a study of the policies, procedures, and practices surrounding ethical conduct and avoidance of conflicts of interest within the Prime Minister's Office, including testimony from the Clerk of the Privy Council, Ian Shugart and Katie Telford, Chief of Staff the Prime Minister's Office; and that the Committee, upon completion of its study, issue a report with recommendations to better permit the Prime Minister's Office to conduct the business of government with public confidence in its integrity.
