Mr. Speaker, as regards the point of order raised by the hon. member for Sherbrooke, I want to say that I have been here for close to ten years and it was never the custom to recognize a second or a third supplementary question. A question is asked and then followed by one supplementary.
Also, if the hon. member reads the January 18 issue of Hansard , he will see that not only members from the three recognized parties asked questions during Question Period, but also independent members.
I suggest that hon. member for Sherbrooke come here frequently. I am sure he will get his share of opportunities to rise.
