Mr. Speaker, the Minister of National Defence has consistently expressed confidence in his department officials despite recurring charges of mismanagement, poor judgment and misconduct.
Another internal inquiry is utterly unacceptable. The DND hierarchy is absolutely unable to investigate itself. The evidence of these documents suggests possible criminal behaviour.
Will the minister treat this as a criminal matter within his department which is separate from the Somalia inquiry and immediately call in the RCMP to investigate the Department of National Defence?
