Following those statements, the list of candidates is revised accordingly.
I ask members for a little more decorum, please.
Pursuant to Standing Order 3.1, the House must proceed to the speeches from each candidate for the office of the Speaker. Notwithstanding any standing order or any usual procedure and practice adopted by this House and to help the newly elected members to identify the candidates for the office of Speaker, I will recognize in alphabetical order each candidate by name and by electoral district.
When the last candidate to address the House completes his speech I will leave the chair for one hour after which members will proceed to the election of the Speaker.
I will indicate to the candidates when they have 30 seconds remaining in their allotted five minutes.
I now call upon the hon. Mauril Bélanger, member for Ottawa—Vanier, to address the House for not more than five minutes.
