Mr. Speaker, it is not inconsequential: A foreign power is attacking our democracy.
Most Canadians are concerned and are calling for a public inquiry. Most of the people elected by these Canadians are calling for a public inquiry. Only one man, the Prime Minister, is going against the will of the people. The Prime Minister's only supporter, David Johnston, is an unelected individual who, by his own admission, reports only to the Prime Minister, and certainly not to Canadians or their elected officials.
If we want to defend our democracy, we must start by respecting our democracy. What does the Prime Minister not understand about that?
