Agriculture committee  Thank you. I appreciate that. Mr. Easter finds himself in a tough spot. The tough spot he finds himself in is that he supported Mr. Atamanenko's bill at all of its stages.

Resumption of Debate on Address in Reply   Atamanenko, the respected and newly retired MP for the old riding of British Columbia Southern Interior.

Agriculture committee   such a strong stand against what he supported when he actually was in government and when he was the parliamentary secretary. I find that a bit baffling.

Yukon and Nunavut Regulatory Improvement Act  Mr. Speaker, that is a logical question. However, if we look at the process and see that one group of people, namely the first nations in Yukon, do not agree with that, then in my mind that should trigger that there is something wrong. It then becomes another top-heavy federal go
