Mr. Speaker, this morning at 10.50 a Canadian forces liaison officer with the Somalia commission attempted to contact Major Barry Armstrong at his home.
What was the problem? As everyone in the House knows, today is the first day of a six-month tour in the former Yugoslavia war zone for Barry Armstrong.
It seems that the Somalia commission was just as surprised as members of the House that the doctor whose testimony first sparked the inquiry has been removed from the picture.
My question is for the Minister of National Defence. Is it not as obvious to the minister as it is to the Somalia commission and to members of the House that Major Armstrong being posted to this war zone compromises the investigation into the events in Somalia?
