Canada Business Corporations Act Mr. Speaker, it appears that the Liberal government is just bringing forward legislation that the Conservatives drafted. I would take that as an indication from them that the Conservatives were on the right track with respect to the economy. Would the member agree?
Ethics Mr. Speaker, yesterday the Liberals confirmed what we have been saying for weeks, that the Prime Minister's open and accountable government rules are merely a prop. These rules state that there should be no “appearance of preferential access” in exchange for political donations.

Framework on Palliative Care in Canada Act Mr. Speaker, as the member knows, I am bringing a fresh perspective to this place. All of the members of the Conservative Party will be supporting this bill, because we recognize that all Canadians need this. When we studied Bill C-14 this year, we heard all of the witnesses an
Framework on Palliative Care in Canada Act Mr. Speaker, I would like to thank the member, because he was one of the members of the parliamentary committee that first brought this forward.
