Madam Speaker, in my 16 years I have seen all manner of committees. I have seen committees where we have worked together. I have seen committees that were dysfunctional. I have filibustered with the best of them. However, I have never seen the health committee engaged in a filibuster because the Liberals were refusing to accept the will of the majority, so we have had to move this issue into the House today.
I hear my colleague talking about how we are going to be collaborative and how we are going to work together. The government just threatened an election over the set-up of a committee it had agreed to. Now we are seeing, in the middle of a pandemic, the Liberals monkeywrenching the work of the health committee and forcing Parliament to take this into consideration.
I would like my hon. colleague to come clean with Canadians and explain why the Liberals have been shutting down the work of committees that need to get answers and why we have had to make the extraordinary move of bringing this issue to Parliament for a debate.
