  • Spoke at a meeting of Citizenship and Immigration

    I've never used that word before.

  • Spoke at a meeting of Citizenship and Immigration

    One thing I've discovered, Mr. Chair, is that as I age it has all become very, very relative. When I was 19, 30 was ancient; when I was 21, 40 was in another world; and now that I'm 30, you know, 60 and 70 seem like teenage years. That's simply the way it works. ... more

    Age is all in the head, you know. I've discovered that.

    Thank you.

    Oh, that is so delightful.

    Chair, it is one thing for you to rule somebody out, and then move on to the next speaker, which you've done quite a number of times. ... more

    On a point of order, Mr. Chair, with all due respect, when members come to this committee, they bring with them their riding experience as well as their parliamentary experience, as well as their right to be able to speak. We often substitute. Just because one person has said something, I would argue that should not preclude another member of Parliament from expressing that point of view differently.

    Thank you. Give me a minute to get my thoughts together.

    Are we still on the point of order?

  • Spoke at a meeting of Citizenship and Immigration

    It's suspension we're talking about.

    June 18, 2013,   Parliament
  • Spoke at a meeting of Citizenship and Immigration

    Yes, I do. There are going to be votes at 3 p.m.

    Chair, could you put me back on the list, please?

    Okay, I'll make sure that I get it from the website. ... more

    I'm going to ask whether I could get a copy of what was decided on April 23.

    Thank you very much.

    On a point of clarification, and I'm not trying to be awkward or irritate the chair in any way—

    June 18, 2013,   Parliament
  • Spoke at a meeting of Citizenship and Immigration

    I have a slightly different opinion, but I respect the chair; therefore, I will move on. Basically, what I'm hearing is that I can't question the scope of the bill. ... more

    Thank you very much, Mr. Chair. ... more

  • Spoke at a meeting of Citizenship and Immigration

    Okay, I will move away from that line then. I was really hoping today that I would hear more from the government side and that they could expand on what they mean by scope. I would still invite them to participate and to please clarify that for us, although it is every member's right to choose whether to speak or not to speak, because that's a right that's given to us in the orders.

    I must be having one of those senior moments I get occasionally nowadays, Chair. It must be something to do with age, because I could not recollect our having raised what is meant by the scope here. ... more

    On what?

    June 18, 2013,   Parliament
  • Spoke at a meeting of Citizenship and Immigration

    Getting on to why I'm opposed to this, and without entering into the scope that is sought, one thing I'm left to say is that there is a reason given in this motion for the extension that is very explicit. It's to seek an expansion of the scope, but unless we can get some clarification of what that expansion of scope is, it's very difficult for me as a parliamentarian to give an extension, because that's like giving an extension on a blank sheet of paper.

  • Spoke at a meeting of Citizenship and Immigration

    Okay, I will move on to a different argument, Mr. Chair.

    Thank you, Chair. As I really do have to go to the washroom, that's where I will be going. I just wanted to let you know.
