Mr. Speaker, I think if you were to seek it, you would find consent to pass the motion presently before the House unanimously.

Also, I would note that perhaps the vote on the last motion and this one should be amended because the member for LaSalle—Émard has left the chamber.

Since there is no vote on this one, if it is agreed that this pass unanimously, we will not need to bother having a list of names.

Is it agreed that the motion carry unanimously?

Mr. Speaker, I know this is a bit unusual with a private member's motion, but with the indulgence of the hon. member for Oak Ridges—Markham, I think that with his consent and the unanimous consent of the members present this evening, if you were to seek it, you would find that there is unanimous consent for Motion No. 170.
