Right Hon. Jean Chrétien (Prime Minister, Lib.)
Mr. Speaker, when the allegation was made that somebody was asking people for money, the minister did not wait one day. He immediately on the same afternoon called the RCMP and informed them of the allegation. This is what had to be done and it was done promptly. The RCMP are now investigating a case involving one or two people.
When I hear the Leader of the Opposition make an extravagant statement like that, I say he should wait for the investigation to finish.
