No, Mr. Speaker. I am not accusing anyone of deliberately misleading me. I would like to explain the process that misled me to believe, which will become very clear in my following sentences.
I have waited 18 months for a response. The Parliamentary Secretary to the Leader of the Government in the House of Commons told me to withdraw Motion No. P-11. He showed me a return from the justice minister that was the response to Motion No. P-11 saying that there are no papers. The return has not been tabled and the table clerks do not have it.
I have a November 22, 1999 memo from the parliamentary secretary to the government House leader asking me to withdraw my motion. I regret to conclude that it seems there is a deliberate delay of the response to my request. I have been waiting since 1998. If there was a problem with the reading of my motion, I should have been told long ago. However the motion is clear.
Further, I am seeking your assistance, Mr. Speaker, to dispel my conclusion that I have been misled. Everyone knows there are papers. Why am I the only one, except the parliamentary secretary, to have seen the ministerial return, the response to my motion, indicating that there are no papers?
I have the appropriate citations referring to contempt if you wish me to continue, Mr. Speaker. May I continue?
