Mr. Speaker, my question is for the solicitor general.
We agree with the solicitor general when he says that 70% of the people who end up in the prison system have a drug or alcohol problem. What we disagree with is that he says he has successful programs. Of his own staff, an internal report says, 70% say that the programs are ineffective in our prison system.
Can the minister explain to the Canadian people why he thinks his programs are a success when 70% of his staff in the prisons think they are not successful?
