Madam Speaker, I would correct the hon. member on one thing. He stated “We believe in the traditional family”. In fact, last summer at the Liberal Party convention here in Ottawa, the Liberal Party adopted an official policy that the federal government should recognize same sex marriages in the same way that it recognizes opposite sex marriages. That is in stark contrast to the position of the Reform Party which believes that marriage should remain the union of a man and a woman.
I thank the hon. member for raising the point about the next election because I strongly encourage all Canadians to keep this in mind at that time.
