Statement on Affidavit
NOTE: The following is a statement from Bernie Miller, deputy minister of Business and Office of Strategy Management
I appreciate there may be further proceedings and as such, will not comment outside the formal process.
I have sworn an affidavit on the matter and from it highlight the following:
- I had no involvement in the preparation of Alex Cameron’s brief. At no time did I see or approve its contents
- I was contacted by Mr. Cameron on the evening of Friday, Nov. 11, which was a holiday, at home. By that point his arguments had been developed and the brief had been filed in June, well in advance of the hearing on Nov. 14
- I was asked to confirm instructions on Monday, Nov. 14, before he went into court and I provided him with instructions in writing which, I feel, he did not follow, as established in the attached affidavit
As there may be further proceedings in the matter I will make no further comment outside of the formal process.
