Madam Speaker, all Canadians want to feel safe in their communities. I think all members of this House want to ensure that all communities are in fact safe. We may differ from time to time on how that gets done, but it is times like these that we need to have debate, not closure and the stifling of that debate. I would like to read a statement:
The choking off of debate today is the latest example of the disrespect the government has for Canadians, their jobs, their opportunities and their futures.
That was said by a former member of this House, Mr. Jay Hill.
Could the hon. member talk about what the cost of this bill will actually be?
