Mr. Speaker, it is a general rule in this House that when that members stands, whoever he is defending has been benched. So I guess that is our answer. He has not been put on the backbenches until this investigation is complete.
The Parliamentary Secretary to the Prime Minister is named in court documents for questionable election spending with Holinshed Research Group. In 2009, Holinshed received $125,000 from the Canada economic plan.
Who signed off on this expenditure and when? Will the government show us the GeoVote application that Canadian taxpayers paid for? Where is it?
