Mr. Speaker, I do have the proof and I will be more than happy to table it.
Yesterday and today the minister stated that he had no proof that the SIU was still conducting covert operations on Canadian civilians. Access to information documents prove that the operations were ordered by the minister's own chief legal adviser, the judge advocate general. The National Defence Act does not allow the SIU to spy on civilians and it did.
Did the minister know that the SIU was ordered to conduct a covert operation on a private citizen? What is he going to do about it today?
