Question on disclosure of information by Adavanced Education Minister to Kwantlen University investigation

S. Simpson: We know the bar for a minister is set high in terms of holding to the integrity of the office. We know that in most instances a minister who is under investigation would step aside until that investigation was completed. We know that in this case the minister has chosen not to do that, and the Premier has chosen not to ask him to do that.

Can the minister tell us that if the bar is set high, if he really wants to resolve this, did he not feel any obligation, when Mr. Mingay was appointed, to have at least called Kwantlen and said: “I want you to make every piece of paper available to Mr. Mingay that involved me”? If he had done that, these e-mails would have been made available.

Why didn’t the minister support Mr. Mingay’s work and, in fact, ask for all the Kwantlen information to be made available?
