Before going to the minister, I want to remind hon. members that calling other members names is not allowed. It is not parliamentary language. This is just a reminder, and I am sure it will sink in.
The hon. minister.

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a point of order. I apologize for not raising this immediately, but I failed to get your attention and did not want to interrupt the votes.
My point of order arises from question period. Mr. Speaker, you rose to remind members about the importance of using parliamentary language, and some unparliamentary language was used by the member for Lakeland. I have sat in the House with the member, who is a vigorous debater and an honourable member, and I would like to offer her an opportunity to withdraw the unparliamentary word. I remind all members to heed your advice to stay well within the bounds of acceptable language in the House.

The hon. member is not in a position to respond at this time, but what we will do is wait, if she wants to respond later.
Again, I want to remind hon. members that we can debate ideas but we do not want to call each other names, on one side or the other.

Mr. Speaker, all of us, probably including those in the public, heard someone on the government side swearing. He forgot to mute himself. That is not parliamentary, whether someone is in the House or in public, and I want to draw the Speaker's attention to it. The member should apologize.

I did not hear it, but does the hon. member who used unparliamentary language while their microphone was off want to apologize?
Could the hon. member for Richmond Centre identify who it was?

Mr. Speaker, no, I could not.

I will leave it to the honour of the member, whichever side they are on. I thank the hon. member for bringing that up.

Madam Speaker, on a point of order. As you know, and I am sure this member knows, members cannot say indirectly what they cannot say directly. When members use a word like “frigging”, it is pretty clear what they are actually trying to say. I would encourage the Speaker to encourage this member to use proper language and decorum.

That is all the time we have today for question period.
We have a couple of points of order, but before we go to them, sometimes this chamber gets emotional and the language gets very strong. I just want to remind hon. members that using unparliamentary language, or bordering on unparliamentary language, is not acceptable. Please be more careful with what is said.
The hon. member for Kingston and the Islands is rising on a point of order.

Mr. Speaker, I rise on a point of order. I believe you may have been referring to this in your comments following question period, but the member for West Vancouver—Sunshine Coast—Sea to Sky Country used what would certainly be considered unparliamentary language in referring to the Leader of the Opposition. I am sure he would want to withdraw those comments and apologize, because they were clearly inappropriate.

That is exactly what I was referring to. I will give the hon. member a chance to reply. Is the hon. member for West Vancouver—Sunshine Coast—Sea to Sky Country online?
I do not have a reply or anything yet.

Mr. Speaker, it is incredibly disappointing that the member has chosen not to rise, apologize and withdraw comments that were very clearly unparliamentary and inappropriate. I would certainly hope that he will reconsider and make the right choice, which is to stand, apologize and withdraw those comments.

Mr. Speaker, I was listening intently to the parliamentary secretary's comments, and he used a word I have used in this place, a word that the Chair occupant at the time described as “unparliamentary”. I would never disagree with a Chair occupant, so when the parliamentary secretary referred to the Conservatives acting in a “stupid” way, he descended into unparliamentary language.
Speaker, before you rule and before the member for Kingston and the Islands engages in debate on my point of order, I would just say that the Chair occupant at the time shares the same party affiliation as the parliamentary secretary and the member who will now challenge this point of order.
