Madam Speaker, what we are debating right now is time allocation and not the merits of the bill on which time allocation has been moved.
As a new parliamentarian, I notice that in this Parliament it seems the hon. members across the aisle have very little respect for the democratic process. The democratic parliamentary process is to have the bills read at different stages, not to fly through them under time allocation. All members in this House should be able to deliberate and represent points of view from their ridings and to listen to the points being made by other members. What I am seeing over and over again is an attempt to silence any opposition.
My question for the minister is, what do you have to hide that you want to shut up any debate in this House?
