Mr. Speaker, as the minister says, this did happen five or six years ago. The report was meant to tell the Department of Justice how to sell the firearms registry but no one apparently at the Department of Justice actually asked for this help.
Canadians only learned about this yesterday. Surely the government did not just learn about it yesterday.
Therefore my question is straightforward. When did the government know that this department had not received the $300,000 report or had no copy of it?
