Jason Kenney Admits to Misleading House of Commons



Conservative MP Jason Kenney publicly apologized today for repeatedly misleading the House of Commons during Question Period last week. Mr. Kenney claimed that, according to a memo, circulating the names of ATI requesters was a common practice under the former Liberal government. He admitted today that, in fact, the memo said no such thing. The memo spoke of the common practice of circulating minutes from communications meetings on pandemic preparedness strategies, without naming the person who filed the request. Liberal News Release

Prime Minister Stephen Harper's parliamentary secretary Jason Kenney, Conservative MP for Calgary Southeast, apologized to the House of Commons Monday, saying he misled Parliament when he said he had a memo proving that Liberal governments routinely violated the privacy of those who file access to information requests.

"I had an opportunity to reflect on the memo over the weekend and to recognize that I may have inadvertently misrepresented one aspect of the memo. If that was the case, I would like to apologize, Mr. Speaker, to you and the House."

Kenney's apology fuelled renewed calls by the opposition Liberals for his resignation.

So that's what accountability looks like, Con style. No truth, no contrition, and no actual, "I'm sorry."
