Mr. Florian Cote (Richelieu):

Mr. Speaker, at this late hour, I shall try to be very brief and perhaps overlook all

that has been said since the start of the sitting which, to my mind has lasted much too long.

Contrary to some of my colleagues, I am not so pleased with the debate held tonight. For some, it was a happy occasion because they were able to express themselves. If I were the hon. member for Shefford (Mr. Rondeau), I would be happy because, as he said, he learned something from the Liberals tonight.

Mr. Cote:

I believe I do, Mr. Speaker, I am ready to accept that with some reservations. We should be careful. Considering the very broad jurisdiction of the Canadian Parliament and its administrative procedures, the acts which were passed and the powers some agencies were interested with, when it comes to believing that one is right in trying to urge government to pass bills faster than the acts which were designed by that very Parliament, then I have reservations. That is why I am saying that as members of Parliament we should try not to prove people that we have been strong, that we loved them; crying on the left shoulder knowing that favors may be obtained from the right one, that is what my reservations are about.
