I thank you for that. I guess my concern is the following. We've had this only a few times where a serious matter is brought before the lobbying or conflict of interest commissioner, and there is a finding. Your predecessor, Ms. Shepherd, used to find lobbyists contravening the act, but sometimes it was a public officer holder.
In August 2019, Commissioner Dion found that the Prime Minister had broken section 9 of the act, which is very specific, because it was to improperly further the financial interests of another party, that being SNC-Lavalin. He said that the authority of the Prime Minister and his office was used to circumvent, undermine, and ultimately attempt to discredit the decision of the Director of Public Prosecutions as well as the authority of Ms. Wilson-Raybould.
I know you can't say whether or not you carried out an investigation, but it seems we're in a very odd situation that on the person who put the Prime Ministerin this position, or the people who did, there is no report, there is no statement. There is no reference whether it was turned over to the RCMP. We don't know. If you found it sufficiently serious, and you forwarded it to the RCMP, would you not at least make that statement known, or that you had initiated an investigation? Was there an investigation, and were they found in compliance or not?
