Stéphane Bergeron

Bloc Québécois

Mr. Stéphane Bergeron (Verchères—Les-Patriotes, BQ)

Mr. Speaker, yesterday in this House, the Leader of the Government in the House accused the Bloc Quebecois of tabling “hundreds of clippings from old newspapers”, to enlighten the House on the infamous Bill C-20.
For his own personal information, the government House leader should have let the House authorize the tabling of these so-called old newspapers clipping. I think he should have read them, for his own benefit and that of all Quebecers.
I have here a very interesting article, particularly for our friends from the New Democratic Party. It is an article that was published in the December 2 issue of La Presse , under the title “Quebec alone should determine the clarity of the question, said McDonough”.
Since the government wants to muzzle the committee, as it has done in this House with respect to this bill, I urge the House once again to authorize me to table this article, for its own benefit.
