Mr. Speaker, I appreciate the personal story and the comments by my colleague from Portneuf—Jacques-Cartier. This is a very personal, emotional and important debate. Like me, he is a new MP, and he was not here when the Carter decision was handed down.

However, I am somewhat frustrated by the fact that nothing was done in the four months that passed between the time that the Supreme Court ruling was handed down and the end of the 41st parliament.

Since we were given such a short deadline, does my colleague believe that passing the bill at second reading would improve the situation, even if he is not satisfied with the conditions, or would he be happy with the void created by the failure to pass the bill at third reading, in the event that the changes he wants were not accepted?

Monsieur le Président, j'apprécie l'histoire personnelle et les commentaires de mon collègue de Portneuf—Jacques-Cartier. C'est un débat très personnel, très émotif et très important. Comme moi, il est un nouveau député et il ne siégeait pas ici quand la décision a été rendue dans l'affaire Carter.

Toutefois, cela me frustre un peu que rien n'ait été fait au cours des quatre mois qui se sont écoulés entre la décision de la Cour suprême et la fin de la 41e législature.

Étant donné qu'une courte échéance nous a été imposée, mon collègue croit-il que d'adopter ce projet de loi en deuxième lecture permettrait d'améliorer la situation, même si les balises ne sont pas à son goût, ou se contenterait-il du vide créé par une défaite de ce projet de loi en troisième lecture, dans le cas où les changements qu'il souhaite ne seraient pas acceptés?
