Mr. Speaker, the Prime Minister has failed to produce a single shred of evidence for a Dingwall payoff. There is no contract, no law and no legal brief, and yet he continues to persuade Canadians that there is a legal obligation there.
Let me quote the Department of Human Resources and Skills Development. It has an online Q and A pamphlet advising Canadians of their rights on termination. It asks, does this mean that an employee who quits or otherwise terminates his or her own employment is entitled to severance? The answer is no.
Let me ask the human resources minister to assure the House that she will brief the Prime Minister on this issue.
