The bill at the centre of debate in the House of Commons for most of this week—Bill C-22, the government’s proposed legislation to create a National Security and Intelligence Committee of Parliamentarians—comes with sizeable pay bumps for those selected to be on it.
The bill, currently at second reading, was introduced just ahead of MPs fleeing Parliament for the summer, and is being sponsored by Government House Leader Bardish Chagger (Waterloo, Ont.). The government has dedicated three days of debate to it in the House this week—Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday—in hopes of passing it at second reading and getting it off to the Public Safety and National Security Committee by the end of the week.
