Mr. Speaker, words matter. A person's word matters.
This is a betrayal. The Prime Minister has finally killed off what remained of our hopes for democratic renewal. The Prime Minister made a promise, a promise echoed by his candidates, his throne speech, his mandate letters, and the parliamentary committee. Now, he thumbs his nose at the hundreds of thousands of people who really believed him.
They lied to us. They lied to the people.
What is the Prime Minister's word worth?
