Mr. Speaker, the list grows because Pierre Thibault also had the benefit of the Prime Minister's intervention.
He has admitted misappropriating a million dollars from a company in Belgium. He is under criminal investigation, yet the Prime Minister met with him and, abracadabra, hundreds of thousands of dollars became available to him for a hotel. The Prime Minister must remember that place. After all, that is where he hosted the Liberal caucus last summer.
Why is the Prime Minister using his influence to funnel government money to shady characters in Shawinigan?
