Guests in the House of Commons Mr. Speaker, the allegation that my hon. colleague has made is simply false. That did not happen.
Guests in the House of Commons Mr. Speaker, as my hon. colleague knows, things that go horribly wrong in the House and maybe even in committees are erased from publications. This was the case when the member for St. Albert—Edmonton read some extremely unsettling comments in committee. Underlying the request o
Guests in the House of Commons Mr. Speaker, again, I would ask my hon. colleagues to please stick to the facts.

Guests in the House of Commons Mr. Speaker, my family walked into Auschwitz, and only my grandfather and great uncle walked out. Never in a million years would I have imagined that the Speaker of the House of Commons would invite someone who fought for the Nazis to this place, recognize him in front of everyon
Guests in the House of Commons Mr. Speaker, as my hon. colleague knows, the decision to invite and acknowledge this individual was the Speaker's and the Speaker's alone. For that, he has apologized.

Guests in the House of Commons Mr. Speaker, I think we all agree with my hon. colleague that we wish this had never happened, because it did bring shame and embarrassment to every single member of the House, as well as every single Canadian.

Guests in the House of Commons Mr. Speaker, I do not think any member of the House disagrees with how horrific what happened on Friday was. In fact, that is why every single member of this place called for the resignation of the Speaker, because he brought shame and embarrassment not only to this Parliament, b
Guests in the House of Commons Mr. Speaker, I want to acknowledge my hon. colleague, because he is the first and only Conservative MP who has actually acknowledged that this was the responsibility of the Speaker, which is why the Speaker took responsibility and why he resigned.

Guests in the House of Commons Mr. Speaker, I have already answered this question. Conservative members are aware of the facts. I would like to ask them once again to stick to the facts and not to say things that are untrue.
Guests in the House of Commons Mr. Speaker, as the member opposite knows full well, it was the Speaker of the House who invited this individual, who chose to recognize him without informing a single member in this House, the government, the Prime Minister or the Ukrainian delegation. This has caused enormous h
Guests in the House of Commons Mr. Speaker, my Conservative colleague opposite continues to spread false information. We know the Speaker has admitted it. He has apologized and he has resigned because it was he and he alone who invited this individual and recognized him. The guest list was vetted by the Parli
Guests in the House of Commons Mr. Speaker, today, every member of the House has called for the Speaker of the House to resign because everyone recognizes that it was his actions that led to what happened on Friday and he was responsible.
