Madam Speaker, I must say that I was appalled to hear the minister's comments. It was like me going to my doctor with a severe case of pneumonia and him giving me a sugar pill instead of penicillin. That is the way his speech came across today. It was syrupy sentimentalism. It spent a quarter of the time on the American system. We do not want to hear about the American system. We do not want the American system. We want a fixed, made in Canada system. We have people in the House who are willing to work toward that solution. We would like the Liberals to get on board.
In the House of Commons on June 15th, 2000. See this statement in context.
