The House of Commons returned Monday after a break week, and we expect the Senate scandal to come up.

There are just too many questions still unanswered.

It hasn’t helped that the Conservative government keeps changing its story whenever inconvenient facts surface showing their talking points to be untrue.

The general consensus is the Conservatives have not been clear about the Mike Duffy/Nigel Wright affair. 

Tell that to Stephen Harper’s parliamentary secretary, Paul Calandra. He’s tasked with fielding questions about the ongoing Senate scandal in the House of Commons. Before break week, one of his favourite go-to lines (using it 24 times in under 45 minutes), was “we’ve been very clear.”
 

Now that the House of Commons is sitting again, will we see more of this?
