Mr. Speaker, there is still no straight answer to my question.
The problem is that the Prime Minister is not credible when it comes to issues of abusing power.
That is the government that has abused millions of dollars in lucrative sponsorship and advertising contracts. It is the Prime Minister who was involved in the silencing of a CBC reporter, Terry Milewski. It is the Prime Minister who called the Business Development Bank to influence its decisions. It is the Prime Minister who waged a petty war against the previous owner of the Southam chain, Mr. Black.
With this history, how can Canadians be sure that the Prime Minister did not abuse his power once--
