A lot happens in Parliament, aside from the theatre of Question Period and the now ritualized scrums that follow in the lobby of the House.
Some of it is sublime; some, ridiculous.
Some of it is enlightening; some, mind-numbing.
And most of it happens far from the gaze of the media or the public.
On April 25, for instance, the House Finance Committee heard from a number of expert witnesses on -- believe it or not -- the subject of inequality.
How and why -- in this time, and with the current Conservative Party in power -- a House of Commons committee decided to even talk about such a subject is a bit of a mystery.
It happened, however, and it was an exercise that might have merited a bit more attention.
