Presence in Gallery  Mr. Speaker, I rise on a point of order. In her response earlier, the hon. government House leader made reference to a piece of correspondence she had given you.

Indigenous Languages Act  Madam Speaker, very briefly, the member reflects some real concerns. I will be voting in favour of the legislation. The things that it does, it does well.
