Ms. Martha Hall Findlay:
Mr. Speaker, I would suggest to the members opposite that my concern is actually no laughing matter.
When I was referring in my question to Louise Arbour, the President of the Treasury Board very loudly yelled out, "She’s a disgrace". I would ask if the member opposite would in fact do the dignified thing and withdraw his comments.
Hon. Vic Toews (President of the Treasury Board, CPC):
Mr. Speaker, this gives me an opportunity to clarify my comments.
The comments that Louise Arbour have made in respect of the state of Israel and the people of Israel are in fact a disgrace, and I stand by those words.
