Mr. M. Smith Mr. M. Smith
Mr. M. Smith: The investigation by the military police into this matter is nearing completion. A small number of interviews with relevant parties remain to be completed. Once these have been completed, a military police report on the incident will be compiled and will be submitted to the military authorities. As I have previously indicated to the House, I have asked that the investigation be expedited and that a report be submitted to me as soon as possible. Once the current investigation is completed, I will consider whatever recommendations may be made to me regarding the ongoing management and control of military ranges.
