Mr. Speaker, the latest information about Jeffrey Delisle indicates that his espionage activities were discovered by the FBI.
However, the Minister of National Defence refuses to accept responsibility for this appalling security breach. National Defence and CSIS did not follow the rules. Delisle's security clearance was supposed to be checked every five years. That did not happen.
Why was the level 3 top secret security clearance of an officer who put the security of our country and our allies at risk not reviewed on schedule?
