To the hon. member with all respect, the fisheries question in Canada on both coasts is one of great importance to all of us in the House and to all Canadians.
However, I suggest the hon. member might have avenues to pursue that other than an emergency debate. It seems to me at this time at least an emergency debate on that topic would not be in order.
I thank him for his intervention on behalf of his constituents and for the work he is doing in that regard.
