Mr. Speaker, I have to take the member up on a couple of points he began with.
He described the Conservative government as “strong” and “stable”. I would never use those adjectives to describe the Conservative government.
The Conservative government is so weakened by scandal, such as the Senate scandal and the scandal in the Prime Minister's Office, and it is so weakened by non-answers that it has not become “strong” and “stable”, but absolutely ineffective. The business of our country is practically at a standstill because of scandal and because the government is so far from strong and stable.
