    Argument? You're right, I had not used the word “argument” before. ... more

    I have heard this argument....

    A point of order, Mr. Chair.

    What really is outrageous is that another 10 minutes have gone by. In light of the fact we again have delayed this debate, I request the chair reconsider his suspension at 2:30 and push it back another 10 minutes so that we can actually get back to the heart of the issue, which is a motion that should have been passed a week ago, or at least voted on. ... more

    I am just going to say what really is outrageous is the fact—

    As I was saying, any member of this committee is free to vacate this committee, go to QP, and watch the whole of it. As I said before, I'm prepared to sit right through until we are able to vote on a simple motion that should have taken less than two minutes, but here we are a week later. After several suspensions and adjournments, after calling a chair in England to commence a new committee, and after all the other business that has gone on, I'm prepared to sit right through. This bill is that important.

    Should I hold my thought?

    Once again, any member who wants to leave this committee is free to go and attend QP.

    On that point, I think that we should continue working through. The majority of the members on this side have sat through over a week of debate. I'm afraid that if we leave for QP, the NDP or the opposition might come up with a new point and we might miss it. I'm prepared to sit right through. If I have to go right to the very last sitting day, I'm prepared to do it.

    Once again, Mr. Chair, we don't need a mass exodus to the bathroom. In fact there are only two stalls in the women's bathroom, so if all of the ladies who are in here, including the clerks and all the analysts, went to the bathroom, we actually could not get that particular business done within five minutes. ... more

    We've heard the same argument, with their claims that the government hijacked this bill and sat at the committee. In fact, I heard it multiple times throughout the past week when you were not here, Mr. Chair. But certainly we've heard it since you've been here, yesterday and today. We're going through the same cycle of arguments once again.

    I've heard that argument about whether we can get it through or not 100 times in the last week—maybe not 100 times, maybe 99, but I've heard it multiple times.

  • Spoke at a meeting of Citizenship and Immigration

    It is the same point. We've done this again and again. Every member of this committee knows that if they need to get up and use the facilities, they're more than welcome to do so. We don't need to do mass bathroom breaks. We'd like to continue with debate while she's—

    She's referring to something that we already debated and we already went through committee on. She's going back in time.

    It's some issue that's not related to this particular bill.

    No, it's a different point of order. Yesterday you made a point of acknowledging three members of this committee who were not wearing jackets—Mr. Lamoureux, Mr. Dykstra, and Mr. Leung. I'm looking across and I see you've just acknowledged Ms. Sims and she is wearing a jersey knit shirt and no jacket, and I just would like clarification whether there's a double standard in this committee, or whether women are allowed to just wear shirts...[Inaudible--Editor].
