Mr. Speaker, the previous government was not brought to power by the people who voted for it, as the member says, as much as by the sheer force of the number of voters who were suppressed by the Conservatives' unethical electoral practices. How do Conservatives sleep at night knowing that they have condemned a young, unilingual, non-technical local staffer to jail for a national, coordinated, bilingual, and highly technical voter suppression scheme?

When it comes to the Conservatives, ethics are as mythical a creature as balanced budgets.

Monsieur le Président, le gouvernement précédent n'est pas arrivé au pouvoir en raison du nombre de personnes qui ont voté pour lui, comme le prétend le député, mais plutôt à cause du nombre d'électeurs qui ont été muselés par des pratiques électorales conservatrices contraires à l'éthique. Comment les conservateurs peuvent-ils dormir sur leurs deux oreilles sachant qu'ils ont fait envoyer en prison un jeune employé unilingue, sans compétences techniques et rattaché à un bureau local en le désignant comme le bouc émissaire d'un stratagème hautement technique et coordonné à l'échelle nationale, dans les deux langues officielles, qui visait à empêcher des électeurs de voter?

Pour les conservateurs, l'éthique est quelque chose d'aussi fictif que l'équilibre budgétaire.
