Mr. Speaker, the member is abusing the process of the House of Commons in this question period to make unwarranted assertions.
The PQ member of the assembly was interviewed by TVA Mauricie today about this very issue. He said:
<“No, no, no, there can be no favoritism”. He went on to say “Mr. Chrétien did exactly the same thing I did in Quebec City, that is within the standard government programs with specific criteria we made sure our ridings got their fair share”.
That statement by the political enemy of the Prime Minister speaks for the Prime Minister's integrity and the integrity of the process.
