Delivered on March 3, 2017
Mr. Speaker, this morning CBC published an article quoting from Oral Questions yesterday. The article repeats a misstatement that I made during my reply to Oral Question 670-18(2).
I would like to take an opportunity to correct the record. Quoting from unedited Hansard, I said:
“I understand that there was a careful evaluation of the bid made by the Power Corporation. The bid from Virdi was the lowest rated, and among the factors looked at was price”.
What I should have said was that Virdi were the highest rated – lowest bidder.
I apologize for any misunderstanding this has caused.
Thank you, Mr. Speaker.
