Mr. Speaker, Canadians know the fix is already in with regard to the appointment of the next Ethics Commissioner.
The Liberals' so-called merit-based process is actually a process to determine the level of support for the Liberal Party. People who donate to the Liberal Party, or who are a former Liberal cabinet minister get to go to the top of the list for appointments. That is exactly how the Official Languages Commissioner was chosen.
Which Liberal is at the top of the list to be the next Ethics Commissioner? Is it Anne McLennan, is it Dalton McGuinty, or maybe it is Kathleen Wynne?
