Democratic Reform  Madam Speaker, the first 30 seconds of that answer was actually on the topic of the cabinet leak. The rest was on another topic. With regard to that question, I will just say that the parliamentary secretary's assertion that a cabinet leak did not occur is obviously counterfactu

Religious Freedom  Mr. Speaker, here are three facts: one, thanks be to God, state-sanctioned persecution in the name of Christianity is nearly extinct worldwide; two, religious persecution by officially Muslim states, and even more by officially atheist regimes, is alive and well; and, three, over

Privilege  It is the obvious analogy, Mr. Speaker. There is one distinction between the electoral reform promise that the government gave and the promise it gave here, which is that the electoral reform promise was dramatic in terms of timing. The promise was that this would be the last f

Privilege  Mr. Speaker, I cannot do justice to the hon. member's quite detailed and lengthy paper on changes to the Standing Orders. She came forward in good faith with a substantial number of proposals. Rather than dealing with any of the specifics, I will make this observation. What she

Privilege  Mr. Speaker, I hope you will not object if I take a moment to give context to the comments of my hon. colleague from Winnipeg North. In the last Parliament, I proposed a motion to amend the Standing Orders and when that motion came before the House, it was voted on in a free vo

Privilege  Mr. Speaker, I am very glad indeed to participate in this debate. I want to address the problem that faces us as we decide on this matter of privilege to face the fact that we are going to be sending this question of privilege to a committee which has itself largely broken down

Standing Orders of the House of Commons  Mr. Speaker, yesterday the Liberals announced that they will use a government order to ram through changes to the Standing Orders by the end of June.

Standing Orders of the House of Commons  Mr. Speaker, when the Prime Minister promised he would be answering the questions on Wednesdays, we had no idea it would be done like this. The Liberal election platform contains only two commitments regarding the Standing Orders, only two, one of which is this gem, “We will cha

Privilege  Madam Speaker, we will indeed be dealing with this issue when this motion is passed. That is when we will deal with it, not based on this ridiculous idea that the Liberals developed of killing the motion here and then introducing a parallel motion in the committee. I will not rep

Privilege  Mr. Speaker, I actually am approaching now the conclusion of the remarks I have to make. I am looking now directly at the government motion that led to today's question of privilege. The motion was simply the apparently innocuous motion to move to orders of the day. The point is

Privilege  Mr. Speaker, you can see my desire to be concise from the fact that I keep jumping up at the same time as you in the hopes that I can continue and then having to sit down out of appropriate respect for your position. What the parliamentary secretary to the government House leade
