I'll take your word for it, Mr. Shugart. It seems to make sense to me. I can't believe the federal government put an organization in charge of managing $900 million of our savings, or even our children's future savings, because we don't have that money and have to borrow it, without any due diligence.
I can't believe we paid an empty shell, with no assets, without checking anything. It seems absurd to me. That's why I'm asking you to reassure me, because you're still the Clerk of the Privy Council. You advise the Prime Minister on these things. You have been involved in these decisions. Yet you're telling me that there was no financial due diligence and that you simply relied on the fact that the department had already dealt with WE Charity and on the fact that they knew these people. That doesn't make me feel any better.
Can you tell me anything else to make me feel better?
