OTTAWA — In one of his final speeches in the House of Commons, Liberal MP Arnold Chan — who died Thursday after a three-year battle with cancer — delivered earlier this summer a poignant appeal for civility and decency in politics. Here is an edited version of his remarks:
Mr. Speaker, I am so honoured to have so many honourable colleagues join us in the House today.
I have not taken the floor in some time and I am going to ask you, Mr. Speaker and my colleagues on all sides of the aisle, for some indulgence today.
