Mr. Speaker, whether we think he was a traitor or we think he was a hero, Edward Snowden exposed a lot of what was happening in the United States in the process.

I do not know if my colleague believes that is a good way of keeping accountability, or if it is a lot better to have a multipartisan committee of parliamentarians overseeing our intelligence agencies to make sure that what is going on is the right thing.

Monsieur le Président, que l'on pense qu'Edward Snowden était un traître ou un héros, cela ne change pas le fait qu'il a dévoilé au grand jour ce qui se passait aux États-Unis.

Mon collègue croit-il que c'est la meilleure façon de faire en sorte que les responsables rendent des comptes? Ne serait-il pas préférable d'avoir un comité formé de parlementaires de divers partis qui surveillent nos organismes de renseignement dans le but de s'assurer qu'ils agissent comme il se doit?
