Mr. Speaker, I would like to give my intentions for the remaining notices of opposition for the interim estimates.
Before I do, I want to express my sincere appreciation to all of you who have sat in the chair over the last many hours. I would like to especially express my thanks to those who have been at the table, those who have been calling the votes hour after hour, each and every one of the pages, as well as the security personnel, the restaurant staff, and others for their efforts to facilitate this extended sitting of the House.
I would like to remind the Liberal members that they came to power on a promise to be transparent with Canadians and to govern with respect for Parliament. Today they had a chance to make good on that promise. However, they failed to do so.
All we have been asking is that the government give the same briefing to members of Parliament as it gave to the media regarding the Atwal affair. The message to the members of the Liberal backbench has been clear. The Prime Minister, who has not shared in any of their pain overnight, clearly expects that they will do anything to protect him, his staff, and their reckless decision.
Mr. Speaker, I note that the date on the table is still Thursday, March 22. I believe you would agree with me that this has been a very long day. Canadians can be assured that, while Thursday is coming to a close, the Conservatives will continue to fight on their behalf for the answers they deserve.
Therefore, I think if you seek it you will find unanimous consent for the following motion.
That motions to concur in all opposed items listed on the notice paper under interim estimates be deemed adopted on division, and that the motion to concur in the unopposed votes be deemed adopted on division.
That Bill C-73, An Act for granting to Her Majesty certain sums of money for the federal public administration for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2019, be deemed introduced and read a first time, deemed read a second time, deemed referred to a committee of the whole, deemed considered by the committee of the whole and reported back to the House without amendment, deemed concurred in at report stage, deemed read a third time and passed on division.
