Mr. Speaker, I know it is Halloween, but the member does not look dressed up at all, like the beleaguered President of the Treasury Board.
I will go back to the President of the Treasury Board who, on day 144, showed up to work today dressed as the invisible man.
This project did not come in under budget. The government dinged the town for an extra $9 million.
My colleague from foreign affairs keeps saying this was an arm's-length project. There was nothing arm's-length about it: the minister was up to his neck in pork-barrel partisan politics.
Will the minister explain why he was using Treasury Board to get money for a bogus project like this, which had no justification or paper trail? Where is the paper trail?
