Mr. Speaker, the work we did in the spring was all well and good, but what has been happening in the past two months is exactly the opposite.
The Prime Minister unilaterally decided to shut down Parliament for six weeks. Then he refused to allow proper debate in committee of the whole. Now he is limiting a very important debate on more than $50 billion in spending to barely four and a half hours.
Why not draw inspiration from Churchill, who held proper debates even in the middle of World War II?
