Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, as far as the wording of the motion is concerned, what I will say is that we have to stand behind those who have defended human rights.

Corrections and Conditional Release Act  Mr. Speaker, I appreciate the opportunity to speak today in support of Bill C-83.

Infrastructure  Mr. Speaker, for too long, our country's trade with the United States through the Detroit-Windsor corridor has been limited by a lack of capacity. With only one bridge, which is privately owned, the flow of people and goods has not been as efficient as it could and should be. My
