Mr. Speaker, we have yet another gag order in the form of a time allocation motion, a tactic that the Conservatives are unfortunately using far too often.
This is a record 29th time that this government has moved a time allocation motion. This record may belong in the Guinness Book of World Records, but it does nothing to improve the image of the House.
When the government imposes time allocation on all members of the House, it is essentially gagging all Canadians, and we cannot repeat that enough.
This government needs to take responsibility and do what people expect it to do. We should be able to have in-depth discussions of bills in the House. It is completely unconscionable and unacceptable that we are faced with yet another time allocation motion.
My question is simple: what is the government trying to hide and what reason does it have for cutting off debate on this bill?
