Mr. Chair, just one division of this legislation reflected what was an independent piece of legislation in the last Parliament, Bill S-13. It was debated at the Senate, but it did not have any scrutiny by members of Parliament at committee prior to today. We devoted about 25 minutes with officials to the entire study of Bill S-13 at the parliamentary committee level. So that is hardly a matter of the opposition parties using excessive time or utilizing dilatory procedures. There has been scant parliamentary oversight and consideration of the legislation.
Frankly, I would challenge Ms. Glover or anybody over there to go through the questions that I've asked and find any evidence of repetition. You'll find questions about public policy. You'll find questions about the people we are elected to represent and to try to build good policy on behalf of them. You'll find questions based on significant research by our staff. So we have devoted the time and prepared for this. I would hope that all members of Parliament have done this and take it seriously.
But Ms. Glover's kindergarten school teacher routine and condescension toward opposition members, that “We [on the government side] have been so good to you, and if you could just behave, everything would go along much more nicely”—
