Right Hon. Stephen Harper (Prime Minister, CPC)
Mr. Speaker, I am glad to see that the leader of the Liberal Party has been briefed on the facts in terms of the year.
In terms of the more serious issue, as I have said, obviously the comments made here are offensive. They are inappropriate, they are inexplicable, and the general did immediately apologize. As we have said repeatedly, sexual misconduct is unacceptable in any institution, government or non-governmental. The Canadian Armed Forces takes this issue very seriously. They commissioned a report, with a series of comprehensive recommendations, and they are acting on them.
