Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, I generally applaud efforts to make points in speeches in this place relevant.
I raised a point of order when my amendments on Bill C-38 were being completely ignored by virtually every set speech of the Conservative members of Parliament. At the point where one member was talking about the economy of Greece, I rose and asked for the relevance to the amendments before us. I was told that they were generally on point because the subject of the bill was economic growth and development.
Therefore, certainly the member for St. John’s East was in the ballpark of discussing my amendments, and many previous speeches on other bills have been way out of left field.
