Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, I rise today for a very specific set of changes with which I hope the House will find favour.

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, I want to begin by thanking my colleague, the hon. member for Thunder Bay—Superior North, for seconding these motions.

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, I do not know whether I am more offended by the fact that the hon. member for Scarborough Centre continues to attack the Liberals and the New Democrats and leaves out the Green Party, because most of these amendments were put forward by the Green Party, or that she thinks the ...
