I think both paragraphs are relevant. I think it's an attempt to give a more complete view of the evidence and the various views expressed by members and parliamentary counsel. I think it's an important part of the balance that the staff has been trying to present as we go down that list.

I'm asking, through you, to our Conservative friends, if there's no difference between CIDA and the minister, why did Mr. Abbott make the statement that CIDA had examined this and it did not fit into CIDA's priorities? He stood up in his place in the House and said he was embarrassed to say that this had been his understanding when he made the statement, but that he now realized it wasn't true. Why would he have said that?

It was his last day in Parliament. I just wanted to give him—

There was bound to have been speculation because of Minister Kenney's speech. Minister Kenney made a speech for which he, himself, has never given an explanation, to which he's not responded to any questions in the House with respect to how it did.... The minister repeatedly asked in the House about it, and he provided no explanation. So there was inevitably going to be speculation about the speech. I think it's fair to leave it in.
The reason the paragraph is fair is that it allows the minister's statement there as well. It simply says there was speculation and here's the minister's answer. I don't see what's unfair about that.

We asked Mr. Kenney to come here and he didn't come here, but his speech raises speculation because he gave a reason for the decision, and no one else has repeated that reason. He himself has not repeated that reason.
It's a reason that's highly prejudicial to the organization, highly prejudicial to the Anglican Church, to the Catholic Church, to all those churches who have supported KAIROS. I thought it was a reprehensible comment by the minister, but that's editorial on my part. It's entirely reasonable for people to speculate as to Mr. Kenney's reasons for making that comment when the implication of the minister's speech is that he knew why the decision was made. This reason for the decision has never been given by the minister.

No, Mr. Chairman, with great respect, I'm simply indicating why paragraph 34 should stay.

We're allowed to do that. If somebody else did that, I'm allowed to do that.

Mr. Chairman, in the spirit of trying to find a solution, there's probably a better way of expressing that thought. You could say, “The letter did not provide a specific explanation as to how the KAIROS application did not meet these criteria.”

That would be a fair way of saying that it didn't...because it didn't relate specifically to the KAIROS application.
