IN THE HOUSE ~ Today we showed the world that Canadian democracy stands tall

    Mr. Peter Julian (Burnaby—New Westminster, NDP): Mr. Speaker, after what we have all experienced in the past 24 hours, I believe that we have made Canadians proud today.

    I think that we should thank everyone here for both the questions and the answers. Today, we asked about public safety, childcare, small businesses, first nations and cuts to Canada Post. Would the government House leader not agree that this was an excellent example of the House of Commons at its best?

    Did we not just show the world that Canadian democracy stands tall and that it proudly continues?

    Hon. Peter Van Loan (Leader of the Government in the House of Commons, CPC): Mr. Speaker, I am very proud of how our House has conducted itself today, but I am very proud of that every day. We live in the best country in the world. We have the best democracy in the world. We can all be proud of that, and I hope that will continue for many, many years to come.
