Mr. Speaker, while the government takes year after year to study this, employees are being abused. This should end right now and the government should be bringing in whistle-blower protection.
The Privacy Commissioner is just one example of an office that is appointed without the scrutiny of Parliament.
While in office, Mr. Radwanski apparently exhibited a blatant disregard for the rules and the law, a blatant disregard for employees, for taxpayers and for the reputation of Parliament itself.
In the future, will the government at least listen to the Auditor General and commit to a full parliamentary review for all appointees?
