Mr. Speaker, the member from the other side made a very impressive speech. I cannot imagine being so sure about so many things.
Our societies are becoming increasingly complex, and demagogues are always tempted to find simple solutions that generally do not work. The member said that the main problem is representation by population. That might be true if we lived in the United States or elsewhere in the world, where that is a basic principle. But I do not understand how he can ignore all of the other factors, such as the representation of aboriginals, women and visible minorities, and historic facts, such as the notion of the founding peoples of Canada.
How can he ignore all of the other issues and conclude that there is only one problem?
