Mr. Speaker, there was no mistake. The way that contract went out, it was a grant.
If he will not apologize for all the things the auditor general has said, will he apologize for what the information commissioner has said?
He has had a day to think about it. We can all make mistakes. Three billion dollars a year, it can happen. Canadians are very forgiving, and I say that sincerely.
On the eve of a possible election call, which he says will be based on values, does he believe in the value of forgiveness? Will he just stand and say to Canadians that he is sorry and apologize?
