Mr. Speaker, it is pretty bad when the Prime Minister will not stand up and take credit for his own record of financial management.
The Prime Minister promised that he would start cleaning up the government by getting to the bottom of the sponsorship scandal. He promised that no stone would be left unturned. Yet he is now blocking the release of documents legally pertinent to Alfonso Gagliano's testimony before the public accounts committee.
How can Canadians believe the Prime Minister's claims of cleaning up the government when he is hiding the truth from the committee?
