Industry Minister François-Philippe Champagne yesterday promised to fire any appointee responsible for suspected sweetheart contracting at a green technology agency. “The buck stops with me,” Champagne told the Commons ethics committee.

“I want to get to the heart of the issue,” testified Champagne, telling MPs: “I want to get to the bottom of this more than anyone else.”

“The buck stops with me and everything,” said Champagne. “I agree with that. But I need to do it in a way which is fair.” Added Champagne: “We need to get to the bottom of this, and if you don’t I will make sure you do because I will fire you.”
