Mr. Speaker, the troubling thing about this whole story is that the minister did not have the sense to see that his situation was problematic. Nobody can deny that, if Bill C-27 becomes law, Morneau Shepell will benefit from a significant boost to both its business and its revenue.
As a major shareholder in the company, the Minister of Finance stands to gain personally from the passage of this bill.
I know my definition of “conflict of interest”. I would like the minister to share his definition.
