In the interests of clarification he might want to then double check, because the minister did not make that comment about Mr. Mayrand. The minister made that comment specifically with respect to the election commissioner's job going forward and that the election commissioner who will be investigating members of Parliament in the new fair elections act should not be somebody with a partisan jersey. He never said that about Mr. Mayrand. In the interests of clarity I'm sure he would want to retract everything he said in his opening statement.
