Mr. Speaker, the definition of “honourable” means possessed of high principles.
When General Natynczyk was questioned about his use of military aircraft, he went out into the lobby and responded fully to each and every question and, in the end, offered to reimburse Canadian taxpayers for any inappropriate use. That was the honourable thing to do.
The Minister of National Defence, on the other hand, hides from the press, misleads Canadians, and tries to blame the forces for his misdeeds.
Will the Minister of National Defence do the honourable thing, as General Natynczyk already did?
