Before we go to resuming debate, I would just remind hon. members that the rules for a take note debate certainly allow a little more informality in the chamber, and members are welcome to sit in seats a little closer if they wish. Members do not have to be in their usual seats to be recognized to participate in the take note debate.
I invite members to do as they wish, as they do not have to be quite so far apart. It often improves the nature of the debate as well.
Resuming debate, the hon. member for Newton—North Delta.
