Mr. Speaker, yesterday the heritage minister talked about the receptions held to salute our Olympic athletes. I want to make it clear that the Reform Party and all Canadians are proud of those athletes.
I am not talking about the Canadian salute to our Olympic athletes and their cocktail party. I am talking about the federal government caviar cocktail party held for under 100 people at the CNN centre in Atlanta on July 22, 1996. It is time the heritage minister came clean on this. I know two people who took pictures at this event. These people have told us what it was like.
While Canadians are working harder and being taxed more, this minister is having a caviar cocktail party for $65,000 for under 100 people. She should give an answer to the Canadian people
