Government Business No. 16—Proceedings on Bill C-11  Mr. Speaker, I thank my hon. colleague from Saint-Jean, who always speaks so eloquently in the House.

Government Business No. 16—Proceedings on Bill C-11  Mr. Speaker, I am glad that the hon. member is going to let me speak to the question of witnesses.
