Lib. (ON)
Thank you, Madam Chair.
I think the best way is for the House to adopt extraordinary measures and for the House to adopt a decision to declare that the extraordinary circumstances have passed. There's nothing more transparent than a public vote.
I understand where Ms. Blaney is coming from, and I really want to see us achieve all-party agreement, but I think all-party agreement could imply agreements behind the scenes. A public vote will hold every member of Parliament accountable to their constituents on how they voted to adopt those extraordinary measures or how they voted against the adoption of extraordinary measures. It empowers the House of Commons. It empowers all MPs to vote for it, instead of the leadership of the parties.
