Mr. Speaker, it is now the Prime Minister's turn to take credit for Myriam Bédard's wins, and in a political debate no less. He says that the Canadian Forces made a positive contribution. Mr. Speaker, some contribution!
The large number of Canadian military personnel in Biathlon Canada were ready to do anything to control her, even if it meant destroying her, according to a journalist from the Gazette daily newspaper. These are the same people who draft her contracts in English only. That is the Prime Minister's brand of bilingualism!
These are the same people who put roadblocks in the path of this athlete from Quebec and damaged her skis in Albertville. Does the Prime Minister know about this?
Does the Prime Minister want other examples of this positive contribution? Why does he not consult with his minister before saying such things?
