Mr. Speaker, I do like to be amicable and I like open debate. In no way when I used the word bribe did I mean that it was illegal. Nor do I mean that the government is being dishonest, even though that definition is hinted at in your definition .
My definition basically says "money offered to procure action in favour of the giver". A further definition below that is "pervert by gifts or other inducements the action or judgment of" whomever. It is a matter of interpretation. I do not mean that what is being done here is illegal, but it is something being done that the Canadian taxpayer should be aware of. Three provinces will have their costs lowered because of this particular payment than the other provinces at the cost of all taxpayers. I would just like to proceed with the debate.
