Mr. Bill Gilmour (Nanaimo—Alberni, Canadian Alliance)

Madam Speaker, I asked this question earlier of another member.
The difficulty we as legislators have is in trying to find the balance. Under this legislation we could have one side, for example puppy mills which I think most Canadians would say is certainly not on, however we go to the other extreme which is a mousetrap. How do we as legislators find that balance in this legislation so that we protect one side but do push the legislation too far in the other direction? How does the member see us striking that balance?
