Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague for his very interesting speech. I was paying close attention.
The Conservatives and the Liberals sometimes tell us that we already have a very robust system for controlling the export of arms, but some aspects of that system are governed more by policy and regulations, rather than by the law itself.
Although the government is saying that we must not export arms to countries where human rights are being violated unless we are sure they will not be used against civilians, this strategy, in practice, is not very sound, since we are exporting weapons to Saudi Arabia.
Is my colleague not worried that the same thing could happen with the regulations that would be passed since the bill itself is virtually hollow?
