INSIDE LOTTERIES A 2 WEDNESDAY, JUNE 3, 2015 winnipegfreepress. com P REMIER Greg Selinger accused Opposition Leader Brian Pallister of acting like a bully, and Pallister labelled the premier “ petulant” in an unusually testy exchange in the legislature Tuesday. The two leaders went toe to toe for two hours, as fewer than a dozen MLAs looked on during a process known as “ estimates.” That’s where the opposition gets to question cabinet ministers about departmental spending, policy issues or just about anything they want to raise. Three estimates meetings were running simultaneously, which partly explained the low turnout in the chamber for the heavyweight match featuring Selinger and Pallister. Most often, these sessions see politicians tone down the rhetoric and answer questions in a normal fashion. Usually, there is little grandstanding on either side. But the two party leaders departed from that in a series of particularly feisty exchanges that more than once got personal. Pallister continually tried to get the premier to explain why the government, in its most recent budget, departed from normal “ summary” accounting in forecasting the size of deficits beyond the current fiscal year. ( Summary accounting takes in the results of Crown corporations and agencies as well as government department spending. It’s the official way the government states its financial results.) Journalists have asked the same questions of Selinger and his finance minister and received only a vague response about the need to protect core government services. After he had asked the question several times and received no direct response, Pallister said, “ We have a petulant premier today.” The Opposition leader also expressed frustration at the answers he received when he asked the premier to detail the severance payments made to staff who opposed him during the NDP leadership race, among other issues. At times, the answers bore no relation to the questions. At one point Selinger barked: “ The member ( Pallister) seems to think he can control all aspects of the estimates process. He gets to ask the questions he wishes. I get to answer the questions in a way that I think makes the point that needs to be made.” The premier accused Pallister of employing a “ double standard” because he refused to acknowledge or detail severances paid by government to former PC caucus staff who left when he became leader. Selinger also said of Pallister: “ He consistently puts people down all around this chamber, both informally and formally, both in his tone and in the language he uses. And we see this all the time. And there’s a kind of bullying quality we see to his behaviour in this legislature on an ongoing basis with the way he treats others.” As the session wrapped up, Pallister said he used to feel sorry for the premier and think it unfair five members of his cabinet rebelled against his leadership last fall. But he said he was starting to understand why. larry. kusch@ freepress. mb. ca WINNIPEG FREE PRESS FILES Opposition Leader Brian Pallister ( left) and Premier Greg Selinger dropped the gloves Tuesday in a long, heated and sometimes personal exchange.
