Mr. Speaker, my question is for the Minister of Foreign Affairs.
A consul general of Canada requires the highest security clearance, particularly in a post like Chandigarh.
The government will not say when Bhupinder Liddar received his Canadian citizenship. It says that is a privacy question.
I have some security questions. Does Mr. Liddar have Canada's highest security clearance? If not, how could he serve as consul general? If so, was Mr. Liddar a Canadian citizen at the time the process began to give him security clearance?
Does the government often arrange security clearance for people who are not Canadian citizens?
