Mr. Speaker, this is a quick follow-up on the question from the member for Saanich—Gulf Islands. I rather appreciated it. I think the point of it was after the attacks of October 2014 the rules changed to take the parliamentary protective service away from Parliament and give it to the RCMP and change the chain of command. I think that is a concern for many members. It has come up at PROC many times.

I wonder if the member is aware of that change and what he thinks of it. I think it was a very fair question from the member for Saanich—Gulf Islands.

Monsieur le Président, je reviens rapidement sur la question de la députée de Saanich—Gulf Islands. Je suis bien content qu'elle l'ait posée. Je crois qu'elle dit en gros que le Règlement a été modifié après les attentats d'octobre 2014 pour que le Service de protection parlementaire ne relève plus du Parlement. La direction en a été confiée à la GRC, ce qui a modifié la chaîne de commandement. Je crois que cette question suscite des inquiétudes chez bien des députés. Elle a été soulevée à maintes reprises au comité de la procédure.

Le député est-il au courant de ce changement? Qu'en pense-t-il? Selon moi, la députée de Saanich—Gulf Islands lui a posé une très bonne question.
