Madam Speaker, with all due respect, to talk about promoting, advising and examining is not what we are talking about here. We need to have an ombudsman who actually has the ability to make decisions, to compel witnesses, to have judicial powers.
The idea that we are going to sit back and advise companies that it would be nice if they did not abuse human rights around the world while flying the Canadian flag and it would be pleasant if we could ensure that women and families are not forced to drink poisoned water is not enough. We need an ombudsperson who has teeth. Canadians need to see action when it comes to this.
To say that our businesses are accountable, that they are operating lawfully and responsibly is false. They are not. This is a lie. I think all Canadians would be shocked and disappointed in the Liberal government to know how little it thinks about our reputation around the world.
