When asked Monday night if a response to the detainee document question of privilege was forthcoming this week, the Justice Minister’s office said “stay tuned.” Rumour now has it that the government may respond after Question Period today.
Mr. Nicholson’s office has not responded to a request to confirm that, but either way we should know within the next hour and a half.
Actually… this just in from the Justice Minister’s office:
Please be advised:
The Honourable Rob Nicholson, Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada, will deliver the Government’s response to questions of privilege raised in the House of Commons following Question Period today.
