Mr. Speaker, I am not sure if we have an accountant or a lawyer speaking on behalf of the ministry or the government today.
That is a flawed position. These people deserve compensation. It is as simple as that. He should not simply be looking at the dollars because he does not know himself how many victims are out there. It could be as few as 20,000. It could be 30,000. It could be 40,000.
Will he not do the honourable thing and act unilaterally to compensate these victims?
