    Mr. Chair, I know that on my own behalf—I can't speak for everyone—I would like to thank you for your sense of decorum, your composure, and your even-handedness in permitting all of us the opportunity to speak as we so desired and giving us the flexibility we sought. We very much appreciate the work you've done.

    I'll give you this one, but if Mr. Storseth raises it again, I will respect the rules and procedures. I am talking quite slowly and moving quite slowly, purposely, on the request of your colleague Mr. Easter. ... more

    On that point of order, Mr. Chair, I think you were reasonably quick to call the vote following requesting discussion.... With respect, I understand that we're anxious and it's late, but I think I was in time to ask for a recorded vote.

    On a point of order, Mr. Chair, you really can't call for a recorded vote after you've called the question. I could quote you the pertinent page in O'Brien and Bosc, if you like, but you did call the question.

    Before we do that, Mr. Valeriote, Is there anyone else who would like to speak to the subamendment? ... more

    Mr. Valeriote, for the purposes of the rules, I think we should deal with this as a subamendment. ... more

    I don't think there is such a thing as a friendly amendment in my experience, but I'm not averse to the idea. I can't stop him from moving a subamendment. I would support the subamendment.
