Mr. Peter MacKay (Central Nova, CPC)

Mr. Speaker, I do not even know that I have to rise to that kind of ridiculous unparliamentary language. Surely you as the Speaker presiding over the House, who wants to maintain decorum would not permit a minister of the crown to stand up and call another member of Parliament a scumbag, as we have just witnessed from the minister.
I know that he will now be invited to retract that comment and I know that he will rise in his place laboriously and do that immediately.
