Electoral system, Government bills, Second reading, Voter identification,

Deuxième lecture, Système électoral,

Mr. Speaker, the member was there for a lot of the discussion we had at committee on the Chief Electoral Officer's report that led to the greatest portion of the bill.

The voter information cards are the only piece of federally issued identification that has people's names and addresses on it, and it is free to everybody. People have to pay taxes to get it. There is no other federal piece of identification that does this. It is important to have a single piece of ID that everyone has access to, and it is the one and only thing that does that.

Regarding consultation, if we want to look at the bill more closely, the best place to do it is at committee. The member for Banff—Airdrie and I can look at it in much greater detail, with somewhat less noise. We can deal with the issues one line at a time and get through it properly.

Monsieur le Président, le député a suivi une bonne part des discussions que nous avons eues au comité sur le rapport du directeur général des élections, qui a inspiré la majeure partie du projet de loi.

Les cartes d’information de l’électeur sont la seule pièce d'identité délivrée par le fédéral qui inclut le nom et l'adresse des gens, et elles sont gratuites pour tous. Les électeurs doivent simplement payer de l'impôt pour la recevoir. Il n'y a aucune autre pièce d'identité fédérale qui respecte ces conditions. Il est important d'avoir une pièce d'identité qui est accessible à tous. C'est le seul et unique document qui répond à ce besoin.

En ce qui concerne les consultations, pour examiner le projet de loi plus en profondeur, la meilleure façon de procéder consiste à le soumettre à l'examen du comité. Le député de Banff—Airdrie et moi pourrons nous pencher sur les menus détails de la mesure législative dans un contexte légèrement plus calme. Nous pourrons faire un examen en bonne et due forme du projet de loi en étudiant les aspects problématiques disposition par disposition.
