Jobs, Growth and Long-term Prosperity Act (Bill C-38)


Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, I rise on a point of order. I hate to be persnickety about this but there is absolutely nothing about the Rouge Valley National Park in Bill C-38. I just want to ask about relevance.

The Acting Speaker: Members are given a great degree of liberty in terms of the ideas that they may wish to express in their remarks, and yes, the hon. member is right, that they would eventually bring those ideas back around to their pertinence to the question that is before the House. However, one generally gives the member time to connect those dots and bring forth ideas. I am sure the hon. member for Pickering—Scarborough East is getting around to the point.
