Mr. Jim Fulton (Skeena):
Mr. Speaker, my question is directed to the Minister of the Environment who said a few moments ago that the Government does not contact newspapers to get information, that that is not the general practice of Government. The Government knew, had some hint, of the movement of tainted toxic products across the Canada-U.S. border a month ago.
Would the Minister of the Environment explain why then under the jurisdiction of the Solicitor General yesterday morning after The Globe and Mail came out with the banner headline the Government through the RCMP contacted Jock Ferguson from The Globe and Mail to get information?
