Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, it is an honour to rise today to speak to Bill C-26, a bill to enhance the Canada pension plan. I want to start by lamenting, as I did this morning, time allocation, which is bringing this debate to a premature end. I think this is one of those times, particularly ...

When I was first elected, the consensus among parliamentary observers was that I would never be heard from again. One MP, so it was said, cannot do anything in Parliament.

Elizabeth May:  Mr. Speaker, the hon. Minister of Canadian Heritage said earlier that I had spoken to this bill. In point of fact I have not been allowed to give an actual speech. I have only been allowed to ask a question. In the use of that question, I was able to signal that I ...
