Mr. Speaker, my point of order is with regard to the members' statements that began this session.
I have been here for eight years. I take quite a bit of delight in bringing attention to events and people in my riding who do wonderful things. I am sure every member in the House does much the same for all the right reasons.
Members' statements that preceded question period were shameful. It was all an extension of debate in the House that we should be doing during debate. It is 15 minutes in a day. Could we not talk about the people and events of this great country for just that period of the day?
Could you please make a ruling on that, Mr. Speaker, and come back with an opinion?
