Mr. Speaker, we all wish that things would be the way we want them to be. One of the toughest parts is that we all come here with notions about how things should be and how we would change things, but then we find out that not everyone in this place agrees with us. Therefore, we have to have a process to deal with the issues of the day. Our constitution says, and the Supreme Court backs it up, that we have two houses for a reason. Despite perhaps an individual member's wishes, we need to acknowledge that it is part of our constitution, that it is part of the lawful process we are here to do, and that we need to take ideas, translate them into bills, debate those issues, and see those things come forward by getting enough people to say yes.
My bill on the interprovincial shipment of wine started back in 1928 as a prohibition era idea that many of us here opposed. It took time, but eventually it was rescinded by the unanimous support of this place and the Senate. While the member may wish things were different and may feel that things are outdated, part of being productive is accepting reality, working with what we can, and seeing what we can deliver for our constituents.
