Thank you, Mr. Chair.
The ombudsman's report, the Auditor General's report, the PBO's report and the committee report are all saying there's a failure to deliver service, Minister.
Minister, your opening statements from the last time you were here and this time seem to conflict with what's actually happening within the department. You first stated that it was one employee and one incident, and then it changed to one employee and two incidents. Now we're at one employee and five incidents.
In light of today's news, are you sure that it is only one employee who is offering MAID?

Mr. Chair, I'd like to—

Yes. I've given you four statements from different independent reports. They are the ombudsman's report, the Auditor General's report, the PBO's report and our own committee report, saying that we're failing to deliver service. Now we're analyzing how this service is being delivered, and what we're actually doing is offering MAID.
Is it in Veterans Affairs' mandate to help members win court cases in MAID, instead of helping vets deal with PTSD and become integrated into Canadian society?

Thank you, Minister.
Mr. Chair, through you, does that mean that the investigation the minister told this committee about the last time he was here has failed or that it needs to be reopened or expanded in its scope, based on yesterday's news?

Minister, your investigation—

—is obviously overlooking things here. We already have that we're failing to deliver a service, and now we're failing to find out the true scope and nature of what's going on within the department.

Then I go back to my opening statement, Minister.

It seems that you don't know what's going on within the department.

I've not had an answer.
Thank you, Mr. Chair.

I'll circle back to how I started off. It seems that the minister doesn't know what's going on within the department.
Thank you, Mr. Chair.

Thank you, Mr. Chair.
We have already established in this committee that in 2016 MAID came into place, and it was a conversation between a doctor and a patient. The minister stated earlier that, when vets call and ask about MAID, this is moved up from a case worker to a manager.
Earlier my colleague mentioned “we”, in a podcast reference to a court case, referenced by the National Post.
Through you, Mr. Chair, to Mr. Ledwell, why is this happening? Shouldn't a case worker, when approached about MAID, shut the conversation down and say to the vet, “This is a conversation between you and the doctor”?

Okay. Thank you very much.
I ask that question because it is based on conversations where we've talked about training and the mandate for Veterans Affairs. Is Veterans Affairs allowing for a loophole to get involved in the MAID conversation, where they shouldn't be?

Would it be fair to say that on the issues that are arising—if this is bigger than what we expect it to be—it's because there have been problems in the training or with an unclear mandate?

Madam Chair, how are you taking that vote from people virtually?
I put my hand up just to say that I'm in favour of this motion.

Thank you for making that clear.
