Statement by the Honourable Christian Paradis

GATINEAU, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Nov. 27, 2009) - There have been a number of media stories regarding a potential investigation or probe at Public Works and Government Services Canada. I would like to take this opportunity to set the record straight.

There is no investigation into the sale of federal government properties and no investigators have been called in to investigate this matter at Public Works and Government Services Canada.

Under this Government, and the new legislation that has been put in place, the lines of accountability are clear. The Federal Accountability Act has strict public reporting requirements mandating the reporting of any founded allegation of wrongdoing when all aspects of the investigation are completed.
This access is readily provided through the Public Works and Government Services "Proactive Disclosure" website.

PWGSC news releases are also available on the Department's Web site (http://www.tpsgc-pwgsc.gc.ca/medias-media/index-eng.html).
