Mr. Speaker, the only contradiction is in the member's mind.
Earlier this week the allegation made by the NDP was that there was no financial due diligence done by the department. I responded by saying that was false because the financial specific due diligence was done on the contract by AECL and on the financing by EDC. At no time did I ever mention that the Government of Canada ultimately did not make the decision.
After that process by those two crown corporations, and based on their recommendations, of course the Government of Canada ultimately made the decision.
