Colleagues, this point of privilege rises out of one that was raised on Friday. At that time the hon. member was not here to defend himself and that is why I waited until today to hear what the hon. member had to say.
It would seem to me at first blush that this is not a point of privilege; it is surely a point of debate and clarification. Many times when these statements are made, they are made in good faith, and I have to believe that they are because hon. members are just that, hon. members.
I do not think the hon. member for North Island-Powell River is here today. If we could let this sit until tomorrow, I want to take a look at everything that was said. I want also to review the video. If it is necessary, I will come back to the House but at this point it would seem to me this is not a question of privilege.
