Mr. Speaker, the President of the Treasury Board did nothing until he realized he could interfere in a municipal election.
It gets worse. The minister's political staff have confirmed that they leaked confidential documents in order to justify the minister's irresponsible and unprecedented actions. The minister received this contract under the strict condition that confidentiality would be respected as required under the Privacy Act.
Did the minister and his staff circulate this confidential contract to the media knowing full well that Canadian taxpayers would be held liable?
