Mr. Speaker, I really appreciated my colleague's speech.
It is clear that the protection of clergy members and ministers is very important to him. I would have liked to hear his views on what could have driven the government to amend this type of clause and do away with this sort of protection for religious leaders.
At first glance, I do not understand why the government would do that. I cannot explain why it decided to repeal section 176. Nothing has been reported in the media that would justify making any changes to that section. No one in our ridings asked us to do it. I would like to hear what my colleague thinks about that.
