Mr. Speaker, the difficult reality is that the minister, in what has now become a public document, has said something extremely pejorative and extremely negative about the deputy premier of Alberta.
Every guideline that has been put out by the Prime Minister asks ministers to act with respect and dignity with respect to their office and with respect to others.
The simple question for the minister is this. Why will the he not stand up and simply say, “I'm sorry”? Why is that so hard?
