It seems everyday, in Question Period, there's a question or comment that catches everybody a little off guard.
Thursday's 'moment' came courtesy of Liberal MP Joyce Murray who — in her preamble to a query — compared Stephen Harper to Richard Nixon.
"U.S. President Nixon was forced to resign not because of the Watergate break-in but because of the denials and cover-up that followed. This prime minister is in exactly the same boat," the former Liberal leadership candidate said referring to the ongoing Senate expense scandal and the $90,000 gift from Nigel Wright to Sen. Mike Duffy.
"Mr. Speaker, the unethical behaviour of the senators and the chief of staff that he appointed is shameful.
"But the real issue is his role in the alleged bribery, corruption and cover-up with the RCMP now knocking on the door of the prime minister's office. Will the prime minister finally stop evading our questions and tell Canadians the truth?"
As you might imagine, the Tories didn't like that question.Read More »from Opposition MPs compare Stephen Harper to Richard Nixon
