Commission of Inquiry into the Sponsorship Program and Advertising Activities

Witness: Charles Guité

Catherine Beagan Flood (Counsel for the House of Commons) makes a submission indicating the House’s recent affirmation of the principles of parliamentary privilege, precluding the use of parliamentary committee testimony as evidence in the Commission’s inquiry. The Commission continues to hear testimony from Charles (Chuck) Guité (former Director General of the Advertising and Public Opinion Research Sector (APORS) and Executive Director of the Communication Coordination Services Branch (CCSB) at Public Works and Government Services Canada). Under cross-examination by Guy Pratte (Counsel for Jean Pelletier), Mr. Guité is questioned at length about responsibility for the selection of advertising agencies and about meetings with Mr. Pelletier (Jean Chrétien’s chief of staff).
