Colleagues, I think we are going back and forth. Your Speaker cannot possibly hear everything that is said during the course of question period or during the course of debate.
I implore you, if words such as the one that was mentioned by the member for Burlington were used, they were surely used out of earshot of your Speaker. Again, I would implore you, do not use that kind of language with one another. All it does is inflame members on both sides.
The point has been made by the member for Burlington. I did not hear the comment. I think we are going to go back and forth today with accusations and counter-accusations which I do not think will be very profitable for any of us.
