John Baird Leader of the Government in the House of Commons

Mr. Speaker, earlier this week we had a bit of a disagreement with our friends in the New Democratic Party. I am happy to say that we have worked very constructively with the New Democratic Party, the House leader, the Liberal House leader and the Bloc Québécois House leader and I am pleased to say that I would like to advise that the allotted day designated for today be instead designated for tomorrow. I would like to advise that it is the intention of the government to call Bill C-55 and Bill C-60 today.

Mr. Speaker, there have been consultations between the parties and I believe you would find unanimous consent for the following motion. I move, seconded by the member for Mount Royal, the member for Longueuil—Pierre-Boucher and the member for Toronto—Danforth:

That this House condemns in the strongest possible terms the recent assassination of Pakistan's Minister of Minorities, Mr. Shahbaz Bhatti; that the House expresses its sincere condolences to the people of Pakistan and to the family of Mr. Bhatti; that the House [expects] the Government of Pakistan to take immediate action against those who would harm and threaten defenders of religious freedom and human rights; and that this House calls upon the Government of Pakistan to repeal its blasphemy laws.
