Mr. Speaker, we are focusing on this draft of final cabinet orders. That is the focus of the question.
Keith Spicer's office at the CRTC today confirmed the orders it received were the final orders.
The minister cannot hide behind the Broadcasting Act on this one. What we have here is yet another example of how the government and this minister are wishing to push aside Parliament, ethical standards and the ethics counsellor in order to further their own political agenda and benefit their own political friends.
Why is the minister fast tracking this directive and ignoring the parliamentary and Senate committees which he initially asked to review the directives?
