Mr. Deepak Obhrai
Mr. Speaker, I want to thank the member for Fraser Valley for raising that point. He is absolutely right.
We were sitting here when the Prime Minister used the threat of an election to keep the backbenchers in line so that his bill could go through. Forget about all the other business. That is why we need to give this power back to the people, away from the PMO and the Prime Minister. That can only happen if there are fixed election dates. Then the people of Canada will be able to take back the power to where it belongs, to the people of Canada.
