Mr. Weiner, my impression is that you are a perfect example of a patronage appointment. Leaving aside the link with the Conservative Party, we can see, as we look at the way in which you oversee expenses at the Old Port of Montréal Corporation, that it is certainly not your skills that led you there. You were Mr. Housakos' boss before he was appointed a senator by Mr. Harper's government. We know that Mr. Housakos, as well as Dimitri Soudas, the communications director, were involved in controversy and scandal for appointing Robert Abdallah to the board of the Old Port of Montréal Corporation. What was your role in that scandal, the nomination controversy, together with Mr. Housakos and Mr. Soudas? You were Mr. Housakos' former boss. You know him well.
