Mr. Speaker, the way it works is that people donate to parties. The government follows the rules, not just to the letter but in spirit. Every member of the House has to follow the rules. There are so many mechanisms that ensure this. We need only ask Mr. Del Mastro and we will find out how the system actually works.

Monsieur le Président, le fait est que les gens font des dons aux partis et que les choses fonctionnent ainsi. Le gouvernement se conforme tant à la lettre qu'à l'esprit des règles. Tous les députés doivent faire de même et il existe de multiples mécanismes pour y veiller. Il suffit de s'adresser à M. Del Mastro. Il pourra nous dire que le système fonctionne.
