Elizabeth May Mr. Speaker, I will have an opportunity to address Bill C-63 in its substance very shortly in the speaking order in debate today, but I appreciate the opportunity to weigh in on the question of whether the bill is appropriately put before us. It is the first real test of Standing Order 69.1 ...

Elizabeth May Mr. Speaker, one might think that the hon. member for Hamilton West—Ancaster—Dundas and I had a simultaneous sense of a point of order. I ask for your indulgence for just a moment. It has been six years since those of us elected on May 2, 2011, have served. I recall distinctly the opening ...

Elizabeth May Mr. Speaker, I rise on a point of order. As we know, we are debating in this place changing the Standing Orders, but I would like to refer, for my point of order, to our existing rules, Standing Orders 16(2) and 18. The combined effect of these two Standing Orders is that interrupting ...

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, I think you will find this a real point of order. It comes from our Standing Orders. It is not just a small reminder, but picks up from your efforts earlier in question period to remind members. While I was at COP21, I heard great news from Parliament that there was ...

The Speaker: The hon. member for Saanich—Gulf Islands is rising on a point of order. Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, I was hoping to rise to respond to the Prime Minister’s remarks very briefly.

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 ...

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, I apologize on a personal level to the hon. member for Renfrew—Nipissing—Pembroke, because I am very fond of her, but with all due respect, where on earth is there anything in Bill C-31 relevant to this speech? Perhaps the hon. member could direct us to something in Bill C-31 that has ...

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, I rise on a point of order. I hate to interrupt my hon. colleague, but I wonder if the Speaker has any views as to relevance. I do not see Mr. Butts’ name in Bill C-31 anywhere. The Deputy Speaker: That is not a point of order. Certainly the relevancy issue, it ...
