Mr. Speaker, the minister says I should know. I have to say, like the rest of Canadians, I am really confused by what is going on.
Let me go to the ethics disarray in the government. Last week we had the industry minister's half-hearted apology. He has now gone to the ethics counsellor looking for retroactive permission for his actions.
The minister never reported the infamous fishing trip. His excuse was that he was health minister at the time. However, it turns out he was accompanied on the trip by a health lobbyist, who also happens to be an Irving family member.
Could the minister explain why he has broken every rule from A to Z?
