Main Estimates 2013-14

Mr. Speaker, I listened to my friend’s remarks with a mixture of amusement and serious concern about the content of his remarks and the purpose of his motion.

Like many members, I was in this House on March 7 when the member for Winnipeg Centre rose in this House on a question of privilege in relation to laws, bills or motions before this House potentially being unconstitutional. It offended his privilege. Yet we are debating a motion brought by the same member today that is clearly unconstitutional and ultra vires.

Leaving aside the personal slights and slagging the member has done here, I would like him to reflect on his point of privilege from March 7 and ask if his motion today is not violating the very privilege he raised on March 7.
