Mr. Speaker, as there was no one to meet the secretary general of the Francophonie, Mr. Abdou Diouf, upon his arrival in Canada, he was subjected to a body search. This incident reverberated all the way to Senegal, where Mr. Diouf was the former President. The Minister of Foreign Affairs of Senegal called this a “serious incident, the antithesis of international diplomatic protocol...”
What kind of consideration does the Prime Minister give to the most important official of the Francophonie, when the Minister for La Francophonie is not even able to meet him? Will the Prime Minister at last apologize officially to Mr. Diouf?
