Corrections and Conditional Release Act  Mr. Speaker, I want to thank my colleague from Portneuf—Jacques-Cartier for his fine speech explaining the Conservative stance on this bill.

National Defence Act  Madam Speaker, the member is absolutely correct in his assessment that there have been so many delays on the government side.
