Mr. Speaker, the hon. member talked about civil rights. Coincidentally I was just reading a copy of a letter sent to the Prime Minister expressing concern about why the disturbances occurred.
We saw what happened in British Columbia some time ago with the pepper spray incident. We saw what happened in Quebec City. Forgetting about trade and what the police did, because they did what they needed to do, the question is: Why did it happen? Why must our leaders fence themselves away from the people? What is wrong? Where is the leadership that the Prime Minister has not shown?
