Mr. Speaker, how did that work out for them?
The Liberals tried to put a Liberal donor in a position that would have allowed them to not have any real oversight. The process was a train wreck, and responsibility for it lies directly with the Prime Minister, Gerald Butts, Katie Telford, and the heritage minister. We can bet that had this appointment occurred, the dominoes would have fallen quickly to fill the other vacant non-partisan positions with Liberal insiders.
Could the Prime Minister tell us if his backroom political operatives are making new deals to fill the vacant parliamentary officer positions?
