Mr. Speaker, I certainly did make reference to the Quebec problem. Maybe problem is the wrong word. I should have said concern.
Members know where we come from on that sort of issue is that basically we believe the day of two founding nations was the case back in history. Now we have 10 equal provinces. We have 12 million people in this country whose original language is not English or French. Therefore let us get on with it is the point. Let us get on and make this country Canadian.
We are Canadians. We are proud of it. We want Quebec to be part of that. We believe that grassroots Quebecers also want to be part of it but they are tired of the old line way of dealing with things. They want to deal with things now in 1994 style. That is let us deal with the problems, the jobs, the debt, the deficit, the criminal justice system. Those are the areas they want to hear about.
They do not want to hear us talking about this constitutional garble. Let us get on with it. Have the referendum. Tell the people the facts and then let us get on with it.
