Statement of Walter Pitman
As a member of both the Canadian House of Commons and the Ontario Legislature in the '60's and early '70's, and in the realization of the death and destruction that has come from the 9/11 attack - an accurate account is essential. As an historian with some knowledge of official documents I found the Commission Report quite inadequate. If integrity and transparency are to be elements of a democratic state, an investigation by neutral and knowledgeable people is essential.
