Mr. Speaker, my question is for the Prime Minister.
Over the weekend, Liberal supporters did their best to show openness toward Quebec by covering up plan B, but it took the Minister of Intergovernmental Affairs less than a day to bring them back into line. The day after this four-day Liberal convention, he had already renounced the good intentions expressed during the weekend.
Are we to understand that the real government spokesperson on the issue has indicated that the fun is over by making his government's usual threats again? Are we to understand that the weekend party is over and that the government is once again taking the hard line?
