Madam Chair, I thank the member for that.
As you said in the House and on other occasions when we've had an opportunity to talk about this, and as alluded to by the member opposite, this was a report that was done by the commissioner who spent, if I recall correctly, up to three years investigating and looking into different aspects of this. The minister herself acknowledges the fact that she was acting both in good faith and within her discretionary authority as a minister.
The underlying principle here was to ensure that people with disabilities had access to a community centre. I know the area obviously very well, being a member of Parliament just east of that area. It's outside of my riding, but just east of there is an extraordinarily busy community. Anybody who knows Markham or knows that area in particular will understand that this particular part of the country has grown at some of the fastest rates that we have actually ever seen in terms of population. There is a great deal of demands for services, and services for people of different abilities, in that area.
Also, as highlighted in the report, the minister herself had never met any of the individuals who were involved, so there was obviously no profit motive on this. The commissioner did identify some areas which the minister has agreed with, and with that we have decided to move forward.
The members on this side obviously will not be supporting this motion. We think it has been dealt with. We thank the commissioner for her very extensive report and we on this side will not be supporting the motion going forward.
With that, Madam Chair, I seek to move in camera for discussion on another topic.
To my colleague in the Liberal Party, I will withdraw my motion for now and allow the member an opportunity to speak.
