Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague from Saint-Jean for his wonderful fast-finger research and question.
Absolutely, I do not think any member of the House elected to represent Canadians would do anything to harm them in this regard. If it were brought forward in a manner ensuring that we meet the treaty requirements and the safety of Canadians and global security, we would all support it. Therefore, for the parliamentary secretary to make comments like that is unfair. It is unfair for Conservative members or the parliamentary secretary to make broad-brush claims that the government has tried before but no one was listening, and that now that it has a majority it will push this through.
The New Democrats have stood steadfastly for the safety and security of Canadians and the global environment.
