Mr. Speaker. In response to the question of privilege brought up by the member for Red Deer—Lacombe, I would like to keep my comments brief.

It is not for the government to comment on the veracity of Tweets emanating from private organizations. Moreover, it is our understanding that the building to which the member refers is privately owned and, while it does exist in downtown, it does not form part of what is officially the parliamentary precinct.

Monsieur le Président, la réponse que je vais donner à la question de privilège soulevée par le député de Red Deer—Lacombe sera brève.

Ce n'est pas au gouvernement de commenter la véracité des gazouillis provenant d'organisations privées. De plus, d'après ce que nous avons compris, l'édifice en question est une propriété privée. Bien qu'il se trouve au centre-ville, il ne fait pas partie de la Cité parlementaire.
