Mr. Speaker, the President of the Treasury Board has an outstanding record of public service.
The President of the Treasury Board voted for the Federal Accountability Act, which expanded access to information to a huge number of new agencies. For the first time in Canadian history in the House, every New Democratic member voted to withdraw access to information, to bring a cloak of secrecy over the Canadian Wheat Board.
The NDP is no party to lecture this government on access to information. We are the ones who made it more open.
