Deuxième lecture, Parents, Pensions et pensionnés, Régime de pensions du Canada,

Mr. Speaker, I appreciate the member's support for this very important bill. I am also pleased to note that the Speaker himself wrote the bill, I am very impressed with the Speaker's ability.

I would in turn encourage the member to take this up at committee. That is the best place to take it up, at committee. It is too late for here. I think it is really important that we study every aspect of the bill, and the best possible bill comes out of it.

Monsieur le Président, je remercie le député pour son appui à ce très important projet de loi. Je suis fier que ce projet de loi ait été rédigé par le Président lui-même. Les compétences du Président ne cessent de m'impressionner.

Je suggère toutefois au député de soumettre sa question au comité. C’est au comité qu’il incombe de se pencher là-dessus. Il est trop tard pour en débattre ici. J’estime qu’il est très important que nous examinions toutes les conséquences du projet de loi, afin que nous adoptions le meilleur projet de loi qui soit.
