Order. I must interrupt the hon. member, who will have eight minutes after question period to finish his speech.
Before we go to Statements by Members, I would like to ask the hon. members in the House, but also and especially in the courtyard, to please keep quiet so we can hear what is being said in the House. It is very difficult right now, so I would ask, if possible, to quiet the noise in the courtyard. I thank the members.
The hon. member for Saanich—Gulf Islands.
