For the Record

Dean A. Del Mastro is the Conservative Member of Parliament for Peterborough Riding. He makes regular media appearances and updates his constituents via householder mailings (available from www.deandelmastro.ca/publications.htm), biweekly postcards, and his newly launched monthly newsletter. What follows are some of his more noteworthy comments.

The separation of church and state
"The separation of church and state was set up to protect the church from the state, not the state from the church. The state has no business in the churches of the nation." (speaking in The House of Commons during the same-sex marriage debates)

"If CBC were to put together programs that people watched, it would be able to generate a lot more revenue from things like the sales of commercials. Having been in business, I was approached many times from a great deal of media that asked me to purchase commercials during their programs. I was never approached by anybody from CBC radio or any other affiliates to purchase any form of advertising on their stations." Source: www.deandelmastro.ca/hansard/aprilmay2006.htm

The Clean Air Bill
"Canada's record on the environment is deplorable. There is no question about that. We should be doing much, much better, and I believe we will. I believe that the made in Canada plan for the environment will achieve success."

Student loans
Mr. Dean Del Mastro: Judy, it costs money to make student loans more broadly available.
The Chair: Mr. Del Mastro, express your remarks through the chair and not directly to other committee members.
Mr. Dean Del Mastro: I'm just trying to help Judy [Judy Wasylycia-Leis (Winnipeg North, NDP)] understand, that's all, and it's difficult. (Standing Committee on Finance: Evidence, December 5, 2006)
