Mr. Speaker, in other words, the minister has just told us that she is shunting the responsibility of her own mistakes off onto other people.
There is a double standard involved here. After much hesitation, the Prime Minister accepted the resignation of his former Minister of Foreign Affairs on the pretext that the latter had left secret documents in an inappropriate location. That pretext, for pretext it was, has become a rule in the code of ethics. Now we have the Minister of Natural Resources doing exactly the same thing, but this time the Prime Minister excuses her.
Are we to conclude that not only do ministers not respect the code of ethics, but the Prime Minister does not respect it either?
