Corrections and Conditional Release Act  Madam Speaker, I would first say in response to both of those items that, as a former teacher, they are important.

National Defence Act  Mr. Speaker, it is extremely important, since we have an opportunity today, in whatever length of time this discussion is going to take place, to talk about the issues of concern so that when it gets to committee, we will be able to build upon that.

National Defence Act  Mr. Speaker, I too have enjoyed working with my colleague on various committees. A key point of this is that we are dealing with culture.
