Mr. Yvan Loubier (Saint-Hyacinthe—Bagot, BQ)

Mr. Speaker, the member for LaSalle—Émard boasts that he is a great democrat. He says that he will do things differently. He states that he wants the members to have a bigger role, that he wants the members to be more vocal on, among other things, the political party financing bill, but he is unable to indicate his position, whether he is in favour and if he intends to implement this legislation.
On the contrary, the approach of the member for LaSalle—Émard is to direct things from outside, through intermediaries, without getting personally involved. He avoids accepting his responsibilities so as not to displease and to win at all costs.
Again yesterday, during the vote on the missile defence program, while some of his colleagues dared to vote against their own government, in accordance with their own beliefs, the member for LaSalle—Émard, was again conspicuously absent during the vote.
