Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, I rise on a point of order. It is no surprise to you, Mr. Speaker, that the level of noise and heckling in the last part of question period was a violation of Parliament’s rules. I do not want to belabour the point, but I cannot even continue with this point ...

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, I have made this point of order before. Particularly when the member for Random—Burin—St. George’s is speaking, the hon.

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, I rise on a point of order.

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, now that we have been able to agree on something here, if I may press the point, could we also agree that we would publish the expenses of members of Parliament when they travel across the country to participate in by-election campaigns?
