Conservative

Peter Van Loan York—Simcoe, ON

In my defence, I say that she is at home in the riding and I am here.

To the rest of the staff of the House, the clerks at the table, but especially the other employees who are not sitting here in front of us who work so hard to support us and keep our lives orderly, I do offer our thanks.

Mr. Speaker, I wish you and all of our colleagues here and all of the staff a happy, restful but hard-working summer. We will see everyone in the fall.

Now I believe there is something we have to do one more time.

Liberal

Marc Garneau Westmount—Ville-Marie, QC

Mr. Speaker, like my fellow House leader and colleagues, I would also like to echo our appreciation for the very hard work of the staff of this House.

As MPs, when we enter this House, we tend to be absorbed with what we will talk about, whether it is in debate or asking a question. We take for granted the high quality of the service that is provided in the House. I think it is only fitting that we take this moment to recognize just how well we are served and the fact that we sometimes do take it for granted. I thank them very much.

Thank you, sir.

With all the hullabaloo in the House, we often tend to take the good work that is done in this chamber for granted. So I would like to take this opportunity, on behalf of the Liberal party, to thank all those who work so hard in this House and wish them a good summer.

The House resumed from June 21 consideration of the motion that Bill C-27, An Act to enhance the financial accountability and transparency of First Nations, be read the second time and referred to a committee.
