Mr. Don Boudria (Glengarry-Prescott-Russell):
Mr. Speaker, my question to the Minister of Public Works deals again with the lease renewal contract for Vincent Massey Place, in Hull. Yesterday, in the House, to justify a $15 million gift to Mr. Tessier, the Minister of Public Works told us that the lease would have expired in three years from now.
Is the Minister prepared to admit that he made a mistake yesterday, because the lease still has another eight and a half years to run? Is he prepared to admit that it was a gift from the Government to one of its friends, out of Canadian taxpayers' money? Moreover, could he explain to us why another contract for $106,000 has been awarded to the same Mr. Tessier to renovate a room on the fifth floor? How could he justify all that?
