Given the request to allow the member for Bruce—Grey—Owen Sound time to at least speak to this issue, I would point the House to O'Brien and Bosc, at page 614, which states:
The Speaker has no authority to rule on statements made outside the House by one Member against another.
We know that outside the chamber, when a member or anyone may say something that would offend or call into question someone's character, there are remedies that are not available inside the chamber. That is usually why the authority of the Speaker does not extend outside the chamber for things that are said.
Therefore, given the intervention by the parliamentary secretary, we will hear the member for Bruce—Grey—Owen Sound.
Does the member for Mount Royal have a follow-up statement he would like to make?
