Mr. Speaker, I disagree with the facts as recited by the member.
I have set the record very straight. I have said that I respected entirely the advice I got from the ethics counsellor in terms of what I should do and what I should disqualify myself from.
When issues were raised, even if I did not agree with the hon. members, in good faith referred them to the ethics counsellor for his opinion.
I believe I have followed completely the advice he gave me, but because the issue has been raised, in good faith I have sent it on to him to look at and he has been good enough to agree to give me his opinion.
