Mr. Speaker, I listened with great interest to my hon. colleague's speech, however, I have to confess that it did remind me of watching a man desperately trying to tread water.
When he says he was encouraged and yet disappointed that there were things that could be taken both ways, I do not know if he read the same throne speech I read. The throne speech I read said that the government would kill the Wheat Board. That cannot be taken both ways.
The throne speech said that our international obligations to Kyoto were dead. That cannot be read both ways. Conservatives will put off any action until 2040 when we are all pushing up daisies. I think that is fairly clear.
It says that we will not be in Kandahar until 2009; we will be there until 2011. That cannot be taken both ways.
When we have such clear issues, such wrong-headed issues, and such a divisive path for our country, how can he sit there, and he probably will sit when the vote comes, and say that he is encouraged and yet disappointed?
