Mr. Speaker, I wish to rise on a point of order resulting from a question asked by the hon. member for Wild Rose in question period.
He asked the Minister of Justice, in her capacity as a minister from Alberta, to answer a question based on that premise. In other words, it was in reference to the portion of the country that she represents in the House.
I want to remind the Chair that citation 412 of Beauchesne's sixth edition at page 122 states:
A question may not be asked of a Minister in another capacity, such as being responsible for a province, or a part of a province, or as spokesman for a racial or religious group.
Furthermore, Mr. Speaker, you will also know that it is improper to ask the Minister of Justice for a constitutional opinion on the floor of the House.
