Mr. Speaker, let us be perfectly clear what the government is doing.
A Somali was shot in the back. There was a cover-up. There was a high level conspiracy to delay the investigation. This delay resulted in the torture death of Shidane Arone. Military officials then destroyed, shredded and altered documents to keep it a secret. Now the defence minister is ensuring that the cover-up will continue and Canadians and Somalis will never learn the truth.
Why is the minister so determined to hide the truth about the high level cover-up at National Defence headquarters?
