Canada-Korea Economic Growth and Prosperity Act  Mr. Speaker, on CETA, we in the Liberal Party are adults and we understand and respect the fact that, if trade agreements are going to be done, they need to be done behind closed doors.

Dairy Producers  Mr. Speaker, it does seem cruel to be talking about Canada's excellent cheeses at a quarter to six. I got very hungry listening to the previous presentation. Having heard about the hon. member's great love for Canadian cows and Canadian dairy, I cannot resist sharing with the Ho
