Hon. Joseph Jean (Solicitor General of Canada):
The hon. member was kind enough to send me notice of his question. A few applications for commutation of the death sentence in this case have been received, but no decision has been reached. May I say that in such cases a decision is seldom announced before the last few days preceding the date set for execution, which in this instance is March 30.
