Mr. Speaker, it is a matter of public record and I am quite happy to tell him. After the municipal election was over, Terry Kilrea phoned the Minister of the Environment and asked how his appointment was going. The Minister of the Environment told him that he had no idea what he was talking about. The reason he said that was because no offer ever came from this government and, as the member knows, since then no appointment has ever been made.
Only the Liberal Party considers the failure to make a patronage appointment a scandal. I see the Liberals have not given up that view since yesterday.
