Mr. Speaker, there are none so deaf as those who will not hear.
The minister has appointed Louise Arbour to tackle the culture of silence that he himself embodies. He deliberately turned a blind eye to the subject of the sexual misconduct complaint against the former chief of the defence staff. The allegations were presented to him, but he refused to look at them.
How does he think Ms. Arbour will judge those who acted as he did, who upheld that culture of silence in cabinet?
Does he really think Ms. Arbour will see him as part of the solution?
