Mr. Speaker, first we learned the minister awarded the contract to his Liberal colleague's brother even though the application was missing critical elements. The company was not even incorporated until a week after the announcement. It did not have multiple first nations partners until after the announcement. It did not even have a boat, and still does not.
It gets even better. Yesterday we learned his colleague's brother is not the only well-known Liberal involved in the scandal. The minister's former colleague and former Liberal MP, Todd Russell, is also getting in on the action. How long has the minister known that Todd Russel is involved?
