Hon. Ed Broadbent

Regarding Gatineau Park’s boundaries: ( a ) how many times have they been changed since they were set by Order in Council in 1960; ( b ) were those changes made by Order in Council and, if not, why not, and by what method were they changed; and ( c ) were properties removed from the park as a result of these changes and, if so, where are they located and how many acres are in each parcel?

Mr. Speaker, there is no better illustration of the arrogant Liberal culture of entitlement than that answer. The Deputy Prime Minister equates Liberalness with competence. No one else in Canada does so.

I come back to the question. For four days we have asked specific questions about entitlement and for four days we have had evasions. Is this not the best illustration of the culture of Liberal arrogance being perpetuated?

Mr. Speaker, my question is for the Deputy Prime Minister. Our leader has just asked a question, giving three specific illustrations of the continuation of a culture of Liberal entitlement. Instead of answers, he got evasions.

My question to the Deputy Prime Minister is this. Is it not true that the Prime Minister named a Liberal staffer as ambassador, appointed a Liberal bagman to the Senate and continues to allow Liberal lobbyists to collect illegal fees? In the name of ethics, answer the question.

Hon. Ed Broadbent (Ottawa Centre, NDP)

Mr. Speaker, my question is for the Prime Minister. Justice Gomery was very critical of what he called the Liberal culture of entitlement. That culture persists today. The Prime Minister continues to appoint Liberal staffers as ambassadors and Liberal bagmen as senators, and a Liberal lobbyist like David Dingwall can continue to collect $350,000 payments that were illegal to offer.

Does the Prime Minister deny any one of these three accusations and, if not, why has he not done something about them?
