Opposition parties, Parliamentary democracy, Parliamentary reform, Standing Orders of the House of Commons,

Démocratie parlementaire, Réforme parlementaire, Règlement de la Chambre des communes

Mr. Speaker, the minister and I both served as staff in previous parliaments and I think we have all been around to see some of the very interesting things that have happened here over the years. When I read this motion, I see a whole lot of things that would have helped us when we were in opposition and not a lot that would help us here in government. I wonder if the minister would agree with that assessment: this would help this place function by empowering opposition parties to do their jobs better.

Monsieur le Président, la ministre et moi-même avons tous deux travaillé au sein du personnel dans des législatures précédentes, et nous avons tous deux observé de très intéressants développements ici au fil des ans. Lorsque je lis cette motion, je vois beaucoup de choses qui nous auraient aidés lorsque nous formions l’opposition, mais peu de choses susceptibles de nous aider à l’heure actuelle au gouvernement. La ministre serait elle d'accord avec moi pour dire que la motion qui nous est soumise aiderait la Chambre à fonctionner en permettant aux partis d'opposition de mieux faire leur travail.
