Madam Speaker, I want to thank my colleague from Terrebonne for introducing this bill and for his intervention.

At the beginning of his speech, he suggested that all politicians are for sale, because they request contributions.

My question is simple: why is he proposing lowering the contribution limit from $1,500 to $500, instead of eliminating it completely and prohibiting all private fundraising?

Madame la Présidente, je remercie mon collègue de Terrebonne d'avoir déposé ce projet de loi et de son discours.

Selon ce qu'il a dit au début de son discours, tous les politiciens sont à vendre, parce qu'ils demandent des contributions.

Ma question est simple: pourquoi propose-t-il de baisser le taux de contribution de 1 500 $ à 500 $, au lieu de le supprimer complètement et de dire que personne n'a le droit de recourir au financement privé?
