Mr. Speaker, the Prime Minister claims he did not directly contact the RCMP. Yet his chief of staff and his chief of operations both visited on site to talk with the RCMP about security arrangements. In fact, the Prime Minister was scheduled to go along with them to discuss those security arrangements and only cancelled that meeting at the last moment.
Throughout his career the Prime Minister has told Canadians that the buck stops with him. Now that it has been proven that his senior staff were directly involved with security arrangements at APEC, would he have us believe that they were doing this all on their own, or is he just trying to pass that buck?
