Mr. Speaker, I too enjoy the member's input at the Standing Committee on Citizenship and Immigration, although I must confess that I do not agree with him too often. However, I am pleased to see that on occasion he puts partisan lines behind him and supports certain aspects of legislation, at least in this legislation.
Canadians are a generous and welcoming people. We have opened our borders and welcomed people from all over the world. Canadians have come from every nation around this planet. They are telling us, “Please keep criminals and fraudsters out. If we have a choice of who comes to Canada, please do not bring in the people who spew hate speech. We do not want them in our communities. We do not want them around our families. We do not want them around our children. We do not want criminals. We want law-abiding citizens to be our co-citizens living next to us, shopping with us and enjoying Canada”.
