Re: “Conservatives say they’re ‘confident’ Mark Norman will expose more Liberal wrongdoing,” (The Hill Times, May 20, p. 1). I read this story with interest, especially this line: “Conservative foreign affairs critic Erin O’Toole, a veterans affairs minister in the government of Stephen Harper when the contract was awarded in 2015, said that while he did not hear from public prosecutors or the RCMP, he did hear from and gave information to Marie Henein’s legal team.” Perhaps readers of The Hill Times can answer this question. Why did the Conservatives with important information about the Vice-Admiral Mark Norman case wait to be asked? Is there a reason they couldn’t come forward at the beginning without being asked? It certainly would have saved Vice-Admiral Norman considerable distress and a long trial.
