I would just like to caution or to suggest to my colleague opposite that it would be nice if we could all keep an open mind until we have heard from the witnesses.
The motion I've heard presented here this morning is not in any way taking sides. The motion is asking for information from both sides on an issue that I have in particular been receiving questions on, as have, I expect, most of the others around this table. It's something that I need to know the answers to. I need to know so I can answer my constituents. They are interested in what's happening. The access to information should apply to us all, to everyone, as it applies to crown corporations. We need to see what the answers are to that. We need to know why this has become such an issue. It may be, once we've looked into the matter, that there is no issue, but I think it behooves us, as the committee responsible for access to information, to keep an open mind, and not try to determine what one party is trying to do. The motion in no way suggests that.
I'm in favour of the motion. I'm entering into it, and I'm going to support it because I'm going in with an open mind and I want to know the truth of the matter.
