Dear Ms. Dhalla:

Yesterday on the CBC Newsworld program Politics you stated and I quote:

"We have a Minister of Justice, Don, with the Conservative Party
with the Conservative Government who was a parliamentary secretary
in the Mulroney government and when this Minister became Minister
of Justice he actually stopped the investigation that was going
on in regards to Mulroney and the $2.1 million that Canadian
taxpayers..."


This statement is completely false and I would ask that you rise in the House of Commons prior to Question Period today to withdraw the statement and apologize.

The Honourable Rob Nicholson, P.C. Q.C., M.P.
