Madam Speaker, the answer is yes, and I should probably insert a coin to continue this conversation as that is how we pay to play around here.

The minister followed every rule. The minister acted within the practices of this place. Every member here must fundraise. That is what we must do to fund our next election campaigns.

If we want to have a conversation about how to get money out of politics, that is a conversation I am open to, but we have to operate within the rules that we have here. In that context, the minister had every right and every obligation to hold fundraisers and carry through with her activities in that regard.

Madame la Présidente, la réponse est oui, et je devrais probablement insérer une pièce de monnaie pour poursuivre la conversation puisque cela semble être la façon de faire ici.

La ministre a respecté toutes les règles. Elle a agi dans le respect des pratiques de la Chambre. Tous les députés doivent mener des activités de financement. C'est ce que nous devons faire pour financer nos prochaines campagnes électorales.

Je suis ouvert à l'idée de discuter des moyens à prendre pour sortir l'argent de la politique, si c'est ce que nous voulons, mais nous devons nous plier aux règlements en place. Dans ce contexte, la ministre avait le droit et même l'obligation de mener des activités de financement.
