The Acting Speaker (Mr. Bélair): I am advised that the amendment will have to be taken into deliberation. The Chair will come back to you as soon as a ruling has been made.
Mr. Ken Epp: Mr. Speaker, I rise on a point of order. I would like to appeal to you in making your ruling on this motion. I think it is absolutely despicable that a member on the government side would seek to hijack a private member's bill irrespective of which side of the House it comes from. This is a private member's bill and I think it is absolutely unreal that he should even attempt that.
The Acting Speaker (Mr. Bélair): The hon. member for Elk Island is certainly entitled to his opinion. His Liberal colleague has tabled a motion on which the Chair will rule a little later.
