But I'm trying to understand the bill here.
Let's say that cabinet minister X is under investigation by Elections Canada. Cabinet minister X thinks.... Or let's say that it's parliamentary secretary X who says, “I feel violated and betrayed by an agency in which I and every other member of this place, indeed all Canadians, must place their trust, and I feel strongly that this process has been conducted”—this process being an investigation by Elections Canada—“with malice and contempt for me as a member and for my family's well-being.”
Furthermore, let's say that person X, a former parliamentary secretary to the prime minister, says that being investigated for abusing the electoral laws of Canada is a breach of his privilege. Under your bill, he'd be able to make a complaint, would he not? Right now, Mr. X, Mr. Dean Del Mastro, is unable to make that complaint, but under clause 9 he would be able to make a complaint. Am I correct?
