Mr. Speaker, it has become obvious that not only the opposition parties have become ashamed of the behaviour of the member for Nepean—Carleton.
Last week, he recklessly blamed the Liberals in the Senate for delaying Bill S-225 on terrorism, but let us hear what others have to say.
Here is one quote: “It is entirely incorrect and inappropriate for that member in the other place to claim that the Liberal-dominated opposition was blocking” Bill S-225.
A further quote states: “The workings of this chamber are not always understood by others, including parliamentarians who should check their facts before speaking on procedural matters”.
Yet a further quote states: “I repeat that there was no undue delay on this bill, regardless of whatever knee-jerk reactions may have been seen in the other place”.
Who am I quoting? Who offered such a scathing indictment of the member for Nepean—Carleton? No less than the deputy leader of the Conservative government in the Senate.
