Mr. Speaker, the incompetence of the Minister of National Defence is no longer in question. It is a proven fact.
How the Conservative government can stand behind the minister while he hides facts, misleads Parliament and spends most of his day doing damage control is beyond any reasonable Canadian.
He says that he issued a directive on the funeral costs of fallen soldiers in February, or last year, or maybe it was last December.
Will the minister table the proof that he ordered his department to cover the full cost of military funerals or will he admit that he cannot table something that does not actually exist?
