Mr. Speaker, the government gets a fail on doing its homework.
The act is very clear. When the government takes a look at an investment, it determines whether or not it takes that second step, which is to do a national security review. It determined it did not need to take that second step. Eminent people have been coming forward to say that the government should have slowed its role and should have actually taken that step to look further into the details.
I am going to ask the minister a very clear question. Why did he not order a national security review? Is this not in contravention of our defence policy interests?
