Mr. Speaker, I will not withdraw that word and I will tell you why. You gave me an opening and said if I find a dictionary where the definition of my use of the word bribe is acceptable then I can use it.
I will give a definition of the word bribe: "Money offered to procure action in favour of the giver". This is money given to three provinces, that favours the federal government, for them to comply with the harmonized sales tax.
I would like to proceed. There have been already three or four minutes taken out of my speech. May I continue?
