Mr. Speaker, I could never understand how anyone could actually vote twice, but I did vote twice. I meant to vote against the bill, which I did the second time, but I hope you understand, Mr. Speaker, that I was talking to the member for Chatham-Kent—Leamington. I have four grandchildren, and he was telling me that he has 35. I was in such disbelief that I accidentally voted for the bill.

Mr. Speaker, I too was led down the garden path. This too is the first time I have misstepped in this direction. I certainly hope this will not develop a pattern, but I intend to vote against the motion.
