Madam Speaker, in regard to Questions on the Order Paper, I want to make the point that I put a number of questions on the Order Paper a number of weeks ago regarding the aboriginal fisheries in regard to the impact on our non-aboriginals and our aboriginal fishers.
Those are important questions for the fishermen in my area, all of Atlantic Canada and on both coasts, and I do not believe the government can stand in this place and ignore those questions day in and day out. Why do we not have the answers?
I hope the parliamentary secretary will confer with the minister so that we get some of this cleared up. A lot of Canadians are very interested in that issue. We want to know what the government policy is.
Madam Speaker, if you examine the Standing Orders, I confirmed exactly with the Standing Orders and have done everything that would be expected of me as a member of Parliament. Now it is incumbent upon the government to answer those questions. When can we expect some answers for our fishermen on that particular policy?
