Mr. Speaker, I was here during that time. Those ads were very different from what appeared in publications yesterday.
In the substance of the ad there is nothing that says the legislation is passed or that it would become effective on a certain date. It does not refer to the result or the consequences of the legislation as the GST ads did.
There is no point even considering the content of these ads compared to the GST ads that caused the ruling by Speaker Fraser, which was a good ruling and one I supported.
In terms of this question of privilege I see nothing in the ads that violates the privilege of any member vis-à-vis the piece of legislation which was before the House yesterday and will be back in the not too distant future.
I simply leave for your consideration, Mr. Speaker, that in comparing the two issues you find there is no question of privilege.
