Mr. Svend J. Robinson (Burnaby):
Madam Speaker, in the absence of the Prime Minister I should like to direct my
question to the Solicitor General. In 1976 the Prime Minister and British Columbia Senator Ray Perrault met with one John Meier of British Columbia, a former Howard Hughes associate. At that time Mr. Meier provided them both with extensive documents and tapes concerning allegations of CIA penetration of Canadian security services and funding through CIA agents of specific election campaigns and candidates in Quebec, British Columbia, Alberta, and Saskatchewan between 1970 and 1976. Will the Solicitor General confirm that, as a result of these serious allegations, the Prime Minister ordered a secret investigation into the allegations and the charges by Mr. Meier and that there was in fact an inquiry conducted by a lawyer named Pierre Genest? Will the Solicitor General now make public the results of that secret inquiry?
