Mr. Speaker, I want to congratulate the new Solicitor General and wish him as well as his predecessor.
Two weeks ago I asked the former solicitor general to explain why prisoners were actually telemarketing on behalf of the private sector. The minister responded it was no problem.
Canadians are very troubled at the thought that prisoners could do telemarketing.
Could the new Solicitor General tell us whether he believes Canadians are comfortable with personal information like credit cards and addresses being given out over the phone and could he tell us whether he agrees with his predecessor's position?
