Mr. Speaker, I will speak slowly for the Liberals.
Right now, here is the situation. First nations on reserve are not covered by the Canadian Human Rights Act. They are the only people in Canada who are not included.
We brought in Bill C-21 which would eliminate this discrimination, but now the opposition parties, the Liberals in particular, have gutted the bill so that first nations would still not have any protection. Then they moved to shut down the debate.
The Liberals claim they support the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, but they will not include first nations in our own Human Rights Act.
It is the right thing to do to have them included. Let us give first nations human rights protection and the time to do it is right now.
