Statements in the House

The Environment February 23rd, 2004

Mr. Speaker, on September 26, 2001, in order to protect our migratory bird populations, I introduced in this House a motion to replace sinkers and lures containing lead with non-toxic ones. At that time, because of the archaic procedure for private members' business, my motion unfortunately died on the order paper.

Most unexpectedly, almost two and one-half years later, my initiative seems to have finally raised people's awareness sufficiently for the government to finally decide to take action. Better later than never. Last Tuesday, the Minister of the Environment announced that he will be taking steps to gradually phase out this environmentally harmful fishing equipment.

I can therefore conclude that my initiative was not completely wasted. So, in these tumultuous times in which praise is a rare commodity, I must congratulate the Minister of the Environment on this excellent decision.

Canada Lands Company November 4th, 2003

Mr. Speaker, my question is for the Solicitor General. Last June, shortly after the Jean Charest Liberals came into power, the RCMP dropped an investigation into a case of political interference involving the Canada Lands Company, at the time when Alfonso Gagliano was the Minister of Public Works and Government Services. Robert Charest, the Quebec premier's brother, was under RCMP scrutiny.

Since, for obvious reasons, it seems like this was a botched investigation, will the Solicitor General tell us why the RCMP dropped this investigation twice?

Canada Customs and Revenue Agency October 28th, 2003

Mr. Speaker, my question is for the Minister of National Revenue.

After the theft of computers from the Canada Customs and Revenue Agency's Laval premises on September 4, application was made to the Quebec Superior Court by the Union des consommateurs and a private citizen from Beauport to initiate a group action against the federal government.

Can the minister tell us whether she plans to compensate the 120,000 taxpayers who were victims of this theft, or does she plan instead to deny any responsibility for this situation?
