Ottawa agenda for Monday: Parliament returns, economy, investment and health

  • Print

OTTAWA - Canadians should learn more about country's financial affairs, as the House of Commons resumes sitting today with the return of MPs to Ottawa after their break last week.

The first Question Period in more than a week will also take place, as well as the resumption of some important business by Parliamentary committees.

Finance Department officials appear before the Commons finance committee to answer questions about the government's omnibus budget bill, C-4.

And Statistics Canada releases information on Canada's international transactions in securities for the month of September.

Some of the other events taking place in the nation's capital today include:

__ An appearance by Intergovernmental Affairs Minister Denis Lebel before the Commons infrastructure and communities committee to discuss the government's supplementary estimates.

__ Officials from the Natural Resources Department are to appear at Commons committee to provide a briefing on the Major Projects Management Office.

__ A pair of separate events will focus on health policy: ALS Canada holds a news conference to press for increased benefits for caregivers of people diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease. And health policy expert Terrence Sullivan discusses improving value for money in health care as he presents recommendations from his recent paper for the Institute for Research on Public Policy.

__Gov.-Gen. David Johnston hosts the second Annual Killam Prize Symposium. The discussion will be kicked off by this question: "What do you see in everyday life that others do not see? What is significant but most of us are missing it?"
