Mr. Speaker, truth is not a slippery slope. It is what this place is supposed to be all about.
Why do cabinet ministers appear at committees, joined by their public officials? They do it all the time during estimates. They do it when the committee demands that they appear.
This is absolutely no different. The motion does not call for the Prime Minister to appear. It calls for his national security adviser to appear. The slippery slope is when a public servant is sent to do his bidding, and then he runs over to a bus or, potentially, 20 buses afterwards, behind him. Maybe that is the infrastructure plan.
