Detailed information about Canada’s foreign affairs policy and discussions by NATO nations sat around Ottawa’s airport for hours last week after Conservative MP Cheryl Gallant inadvertently left her briefing binder in the airport lounge.
The more than 200-page binder, containing everything from information about NATO’s challenges to details about conflicts in Afghanistan, Syria, Russia and China was found by former Liberal cabinet minister Sheila Copps.
Copps said she gave the binder to former Conservative MP Gurmant Grewal who was at the same meeting in PEI and asked him to get it back to Gallant. Grewal’s wife, Nina Grewal, currently serves as a Conservative MP.
Copps is still somewhat surprised Gallant left the binder at the airport.
