Thank you, Mr. Chair.
I want to thank you both, Ms. Bahen and Mr. Thomson, for being here today. Your work on this matter has been exemplary.
I note that, as such a small organization, you were able to do so much due diligence on this charity, compared to the vast resources of the federal government. They seem to have been unable to discover any of the red flags that you've been able to uncover.
One question I have is, how easy would it have been for the federal government to find the information, particularly in the context of the Prime Minister saying that on May 8 he actually pushed back, which should be taken to mean that he wanted extensive due diligence done on this?
Why is it that the federal government either didn't have this information or chose to ignore it?
