Elizabeth May Mr. Speaker, I am also a lawyer, but the member does not have to take my word for it either. I was very pleased to be at the table at committee, although, again, I would have rather had my rights restored to present amendments at report stage. However, I did present about 12 ...

Elizabeth May Mr. Speaker, the member for Renfrew—Nipissing—Pembroke has put herself forward for the first time today as the true voice of Yukoners, and I find that rather shocking.
