Mr. Speaker, contrary to what the hon. member has said, it was not me yesterday who uttered the quote claiming that General Boyle, chief of the defence staff, was mislead by subordinates.
That was contained in Mr. Grace's letter. Mr. Grace was quite explicit in saying that the present chief of the defence staff played no part in any of the wrongdoing that was outlined in his letter.
We are not trying to hide. How can the hon. member accuse us of hiding when it was the department that went outside the department to the information commissioner, sought his assistance and co-operated with the investigation.
