Mr. Speaker, the solicitor general is spending $2.5 million in his own riding to research drugs in prisons. The only problem is that there are no federal prisons anywhere on Prince Edward Island. There is already an addiction research centre in Ottawa. One would think that would do.
Drugs in prisons are a serious problem, but pork barrelling will surely not fix it. Why does the rest of the country have to pay for the solicitor general's multimillion dollar vote grab?
