Mr. Speaker, the courts have proven that that deal was a good deal for the taxpayers and that it was cancelled strictly for partisan reasons. The only question remaining about Pearson is how much it is going to cost the taxpayers for nothing. Thirteen million dollars have already been spent and hundreds of millions more are at stake. Who is going to be held accountable for this waste of taxpayers' dollars? Who in this government?
