Mr. Speaker, it makes no sense that the RCMP is investigating itself, which it really is in this incident.
Has the government not learned lessons from the RCMP pension scandal, the Arar affair or the Ian Bush case?
It is simple. The RCMP is also in a conflict of interest in this case and therefore it should immediately be removed from the investigation, hand over all relevant materials to the Vancouver police and let this investigation be run by another police force. Will the minister order that?
