Combatting Counterfeit Products Act (Bill C-8)

On Thursday, October 2nd, 2014 in Points of Order

Jasbir Sandhu: Mr. Speaker, I thank the member for that excellent question, and I actually agree with him in regard to the Liberal position.

I am actually puzzled by a lot of the positions they take on a number of issues. I have seen this on the issue of Iraq. The leader of the Liberal Party has a statement one day and another statement on a different day. One day he is supporting the mission, which—

The Acting Speaker: The hon. member for Saanich—Gulf Islands is rising on a point of order.

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, with all due respect to my hon. friend from Surrey North, we have limited time to debate Bill C-8 in this place, and his response has gone slightly off topic unless there are Iraqi goods to which counterfeiting measures would apply.

The Acting Speaker: The member raises the point of relevance. As all members know, members are given some latitude, and certainly making a short reference to another issue is acceptable. I am quite confident that the member for Surrey North will keep remarks relevant in general to the question.

Jasbir Sandhu: Mr. Speaker, I only brought up that issue because the member asked about the Liberal Party.

To answer his question, any time an issue or bill that concerns health and safety risks to Canadians is brought to the House, we will certainly support those kinds of initiatives, whether they are by the government or by the opposition. That is why we are here: to act in the best interests of all Canadians.
