Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, I thank my hon. colleague for asking what I suppose might be a rhetorical question. In a majority government, the Conservative Party has repudiated most of the positions of principle that it used to adopt in terms of opposing omnibus legislation or opposing the use of closure because it was anti-democratic. ...

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, I thank my hon. colleague from Bonavista—Gander—Grand Falls—Windsor for his support for splitting the bill. In the previous exchange, the Minister of Justice suggested that I or the opposition members as a group were trying to delay action to protect children and young people from cyberbullying. Nothing could be further from ...

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, I would like to put on the record that I support the NDP motion on this matter, and agree with the position that we should split the bill, as other speakers have pointed out. I thank the hon. member, the justice critic for the official opposition, for bringing this forward. The ...

Nathan Cullen: Yes, “the artist formerly known”…. I would say that we need to allow them at least some interjections today to make a case to committee members, because this affects them, particularly Ms. May, who has been able to apply the tactic of using amendments to bills at the final stages of their hearings. ...

Peter Julian: Thank you, Mr. Chair. On Tuesday, as committee members, we asked the clerk a series of questions. You’ll recall, Mr. Chair, that the Conservative members did not want answers to those questions. Now we’ve had the answers given to us by the clerk this morning. Through you, Mr. Chair, I’d like to thank ...

Scott Reid: Thank you. Let me try both of those at the same time. I was trying to make notes in order to be able to respond more fully, but my pen died on me. To deal with Mr. Christopherson’s question first, it’s not people who are not members of cabinet, who have their own ...

The Chair: Because Ms. May is not here, the amendment is deemed moved, and now we’re open for debate on the amendment. Megan Leslie: Is this on amendment MAY-1? The Chair: That’s correct. Megan Leslie: Thank you. The Chair: I do have a ruling on it, but is there debate first? Okay. The motion has ...

The Chair: Thank you very much for those questions and answers. Our next questioner, from the Liberal Party, is Mr. Cotler. Hon. Irwin Cotler: Thank you, Mr. Chairman. I’ll be giving over my time to Ms. May to ask the questions. The Chair: Okay, Ms. May, the floor is yours. You have five minutes. Elizabeth ...

The Chair: I’m going to very briefly go over two amendments. As you know, we passed a motion inviting members who do not have a party represented at committee to put forward some amendments. Ms. May and Mr. Plamondon are here on behalf of their respective parties, which have put forward some amendments. As for ...

Elizabeth May: How come I have one minute and Mr. Plamondon had two minutes? The Chair: Well, you have more amendments than Mr. Plamondon. If I could just ask you to be very brief, I’ll be as generous with time as I can be. Elizabeth May: Okay. I need to say something by way of ...
