Division No. 1124
Government Orders

March 13th, 2000 / 3:05 a.m.

The Acting Speaker (Mr. McClelland)

I declare Motion No. 363 lost.

Before we get to the hon. member's point of order, I want to do a point of order of my own. This is the rule: Members have to be in the House when I put the question to vote. If members are not in the House when I put the question, they do not vote. No cell phones are allowed, not even behind the curtain. We will leave our domestic animals at home. I understand the hon. member over there has had special dispensation not to rise. If any other member wishes it, send me a note. On a point of order the hon. member for Repentigny.

Benoît Sauvageau Repentigny, QC

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a point of order. When I rose to vote, you very clearly heard—the whole House heard—absolutely disgraceful remarks which I will not repeat here, because it would show a lack of respect for the House. I know that it is 3 a.m., but people may and should be watching.

I ask the member for Renfrew—Nipissing—Pembroke to withdraw his words and to show that he knows how to behave properly in the House.

The Acting Speaker (Mr. McClelland)

I am sure the hon. member would be quite happy to withdraw the words. I have already made a point of admonishing the hon. member in the House. The hon. member for Pembroke.

Hec Clouthier Renfrew—Nipissing—Pembroke, ON

Mr. Speaker, I was referring to a four legged animal called a donkey. If the hon. member took it the wrong way I apologize.

I did not ask you to dig the hole any deeper, I just asked you to withdraw the words. Either you will withdraw the words or you will not.
