Mr. Speaker, it would have been nice if the Chief Government Whip, who was the minister at the time, reacted and answered the question.
The government thought it was a good idea to review the detainee transfer protocol in 2007 because there were problems with how the detainees were being treated before 2007. Otherwise they would obviously not have changed the protocol. If there were problems, there was a risk of torture. Yet, detainees continued to be transferred.
That being said, will the government admit that from 2006 to May 2007, it was in violation of the Geneva convention?
