Mr. Speaker, the minister is pretty far away from here and does not have a chance very often to come and see us. Maybe that is why he has not had an opportunity yet to tell his colleagues and his parliamentary secretary in particular that he is up to his eyeballs in conflict of interest.
Now I know why the minister has not had time to run in a by-election. He is far too busy handing out contracts to his pals.
Will the government show some backbone and investigate this immediately because it fairly reeks of a conflict of interest?
