Statement made on 01 March 2011 by Senator Pierre De Bané (retired)

Hon. Pierre De Bané:

Honourable senators, when I put a question to the leader about the commitment made in September 2008 by the Prime Minister in the Saguenay that he would consult with the Government of Quebec before appointing a francophone vice-chair of the CRTC, she answered that she did not recall that commitment. I do not doubt that her answer was given to the best of her recollection. However, I checked The Gazette and Le Devoir from the following day and they both reported that Prime Minister Harper promised to consult with the Government of Quebec.

I ask the leader today if she would be so kind as to check with Minister Moore about whether he consulted with the Government of Quebec as per the commitment of the Prime Minister.
