Employment September 18th, 2014

Mr. Speaker, yesterday, Stelco moved into bankruptcy protection, threatening more than thousands of families in the Hamilton area.

Despite the Conservatives' wasted billion dollar economic ad campaign, the ongoing loss of good manufacturing jobs means a trickle-down hit for working families and the economies surrounding them. The government has dumped hundreds of millions of dollars onto boardroom tables throughout Canada and has justified the giveaway by promising it has protected jobs.

My question is for the Prime Minister. Exactly what is the job creation plan?

Tourism June 17th, 2014

Mr. Speaker, every dollar invested to support travel and tourism yields $56 in return. This is easy math, even for a mediocre economist.

Global travel is increasing, but Conservative cuts have knocked Canada from 7th to 16th place as a destination, making us one of just five countries to experience a drop in visitors. Instead of selling Canada as a destination point, Conservatives would rather sell Canada out by slashing the Canadian Tourism Commission by over 20%.

When are the Conservatives going to start promoting Canada instead of just promoting themselves?

Petitions June 11th, 2014

Mr. Speaker, I am pleased to present many petitions here on the issue of the current impaired driving laws. The petitioners are calling on the government to implement new mandatory minimum sentencing for those persons convicted of impaired driving causing death.

Main Estimates, 2014-15 June 10th, 2014

Mr. Speaker, I share my colleague's satisfaction with his own bill when it comes to being able to transport wine from one province of Canada to another. However, I have to say that when it comes to the issue of the Senate, certainly the Prime Minister was very vocal about his concern about change in the Senate. Yet after eight years of Conservative rule, the government has brought no changes at all to the Senate. It was our leader, actually, who made more significant change in one morning in the Senate than we have seen from the Prime Minister himself, other than appointing 54 senators since he came to office.

If my colleague feels that we need to have some improvements in the Senate, is he encouraging his government to take a stand for the changes that he thinks need to happen in the Senate?

Downsview Park June 9th, 2014

Mr. Speaker, Downsview Park is 77,572 acres of green space, boasting a lake, 60,000 trees, and walking paths, all between Keele, Sheppard, and Allen roads and Wilson Avenue. Put another way, Downsview Park is a one-of-a-kind jewel within Toronto. Despite this, I rise to sound the alarm on what appears to be a Canada Lands Company plan to transform Canada's largest urban park into a paradise for developers.

Will the minister, today, commit that Downsview will remain green, and that the government will preserve Downsview Park green for our children and our grandchildren?

Petitions June 6th, 2014

Mr. Speaker, I am proud today to present a petition from several citizens of Canada.

The petitioners want to see tougher laws and the implementation of new mandatory minimum sentencing for those persons convicted of impaired driving causing death.
