Mr. Speaker, it still seems wise that we would get support from all of them when all the provinces will be involved.
In one short statement yesterday the Minister of Justice eliminated the role of Parliament, of the Standing Committee on Justice and of interested parties on both sides of the issue. He said: "Let me make it very clear. The process of consultation leading to legislation is now over". This is unacceptable.
What gives the Minister of Justice the power to interfere with the parliamentary process which includes the Standing Committee on Justice? Is true democracy proving to be inconvenient for the justice minister?
