Mr. John Nunziata (York South-Weston):
Mr. Speaker, my question is directed to the Deputy Prime Minister and concerns the Prime Minister's new position, his about-face on the abortion issue.
Last month the Government appeared before the Supreme Court and argued that the Supreme Court should postpone the Borowski case until this Parliament had an opportunity to pass legislation. Yesterday the Prime Minister said that this Parliament is postponing legislation until the Supreme Court deals with the Borowski case.
Can the Deputy Prime Minister explain this contradiction? Can he explain why the Prime Minister lacks the conviction and courage to introduce legislation in this House?
