Mr. Speaker, I also rise on a point of order.
I would like to start by pointing out that the current Prime Minister was exactly six months old at the time the member for Châteauguay—Lacolle was referring to when she talked about his father.
We all recognize that we are at the beginning of June and in the last stretch of this session. We all recognize there are some serious and concerning issues for each and every Canadian that we have to debate in the House of Commons.
The House is currently meeting in a hybrid format because of the pandemic. When we accepted the procedural rules of the pandemic, we did so in good faith to ensure the health and safety of parliamentarians and of everyone we work with here in the House, in the buildings around Parliament Hill and in our ridings.
This provision is very serious, and we shall respect it based on the health of the people.
Just because the House is meeting in a hybrid format does not mean members, let alone ministers, can sit outdoors. Oral question period is a serious affair. It is inappropriate to see a minister sitting outside in a forest, even in a hybrid sitting of the House. That is our opinion.
More than that, I have to raise the point that during question period, for a full 10 minutes no Liberal members were in the House of Commons.
It is totally unacceptable that for 10 minutes during question period, not a single Liberal parliamentarian was sitting in this House—
