People in the room were transfixed. "I remember there was this Mom and this little girl, a young girl who played hockey. She was just going bananas. It was a great, very cool moment."

39th Parliament, 2nd Session
Mr. Peter Julian (Burnaby—New Westminster, NDP): Mr. Speaker, we learned Friday that the Liberal turned Conservative ethically challenged minister for the 2010 Olympic Games has yet again compromised the Canadian public. When Washington State went looking for a piece of the Olympic pie, it hired none other than Gordon Campbell insiders, Patrick Kinsella and Mark Jiles, to lobby the federal minister. There is only one problem. They are not registered to lobby, which means it is illegal for them to lobby.

39th Parliament, 2nd Session: Mr. Peter Julian (Burnaby—New Westminster, NDP)
Mr. Speaker, I want to thank the hon. member for her intervention despite her cold this morning. It is a very important debate we are having. I want to thank the Standing Committee on the Status of Women for putting this issue forward because this is a very important piece of the planning for the 2010 Olympics Games that has been neglected.
