Mr. Speaker, the minister still will not acknowledge what is in her own departmental questions and answers.
It is clear there was no intention to have HRDC officials abide by the rules. To have done so would have made it impossible to channel all these loans into Liberal ridings.
To quote the question and answer sheet again, “the rules are not new, they are just being enforced” from now on.
The minister obviously changed her mind about the rule breaking after she got caught. I will ask again, if she had not been caught red-handed, would she have ever changed the rules?
