Mr. Speaker, what the minister is being asked is to explain to us why the government is refusing to tell the Tepper family the truth.
For over a year, the family lived with the worry of their family member being in prison and their government telling them nothing about what was being done to bring him home.
Is that how this government protects the rights of Canadians who are detained abroad? Will they finally explain to us what role they played in Henk Tepper's release? The Teppers are entitled to know the truth.
