Mr. McRae:

Mr. Speaker, I rise because I consider the proceedings are getting ridiculous. It seems to me that we have all made our point. I would suggest that the three House Leaders absent themselves from the next vote. I would be glad to absent myself as well so the two Opposition Parties would not consider there was a unevenness between the two sides. Perhaps the House Leaders can come to some agreement as to how this thing can be ended. I do not believe the public of Canada finds this a very pleasant proceeding and finds it ridiculous.
All I am suggesting is that three House Leaders absent themselves for a few moments. I would be glad to do what I said I would do, absent myself from the vote so there would be no unevenness. Let us see if we can come to some reasonable conclusion to what is becoming a farce.
