Mr. Speaker, it is obvious that this cyber attack caught the Conservatives completely unprepared.
Cyber crimes like this are not the work of suburban kids in their bedrooms, but are sophisticated and organized.
None of this should be a surprise to the government. It has been warned many times before, including by the Auditor General in a comprehensive report years ago. We have seen similar attacks on the U.S. and the U.K., and they have taken measures to protect themselves against such crimes.
Instead of bureaucrats working out of Starbucks for free Wi-Fi, what measures will the government take to ensure this never happens again?
