Statements in the House
Privacy Commissioner June 5th, 2014
Mr. Speaker, thank you very much for that explanation, but I would like to explain my actions yesterday when I walked in by myself.
We had an agreement with the official opposition that we would have the vote right after question period, with no bells. When that was changed, right after question period, I was waiting down at the other end to enter the chamber for the vote. Then we had to go through a 15-minute unnecessary wait when we were all here. That is why, when 15 minutes expired, I walked up the aisle.
Canada-Honduras Economic Growth and Prosperity Act June 4th, 2014
Mr. Speaker, we were entertained by the member for Charleswood—St. James—Assiniboia's double pirouette on the floor of the House of Commons, but I would like to point out that the deputy whip, the whip, and the member for Ottawa Centre were not in their seats when you rose, Mr. Speaker. If one vote can be discarded over there, at least three votes can be discarded over there.
Energy Safety and Security Act May 29th, 2014
Mr. Speaker, I request that we see the clock at two o'clock.
Business of Supply May 15th, 2014
Mr. Speaker, on a point of order, I understand that we are not to wear props when we are in the House of Commons. The current speaker and some other members of the NDP are currently wearing props sponsoring a political cause, and I would suggest it is inappropriate.
Points of Order May 8th, 2014
Mr. Speaker, I have a recommendation for the whips, including myself, and that would be to remind our caucus of the accepted practice in the House when it comes to putting things on the desks. We know the rules, and we know the rules were not followed in this case. We will remind our caucuses.
Protecting Canadians from Online Crime Act April 28th, 2014
Mr. Speaker, I would request that we see the clock at 6:30 p.m.
Tla'amin Final Agreement April 4th, 2014
Mr. Speaker, I have the honour to table, in both official languages, the Tla'amin final agreement, the Tla'amin final agreement appendices, and the Tla'amin tax treatment agreement.
