Mr. Speaker, this is a classic example of trying to muddle the issue. The government can say what it wants; they have individual funds that were written into a bill. It is in the legislation.
These funds were automatically transferred, and the Chief Electoral Officer said, “This is out of control”. No one can deny this.
What I want to know from the government is this: if it wants to be more transparent with its finances, will it allow these funds to be examined?
