Crucial Fact

  • Her favourite word is colleague.

NDP MP for Alfred-Pellan (Québec)

Won her last election, in 2011, with 42.10% of the vote.

Statements in the House

Canada Post December 12th, 2014

Mr. Speaker, most residents of Laval will lose their home mail delivery service in the coming months.

Like thousands of Canadians, the people of Alfred-Pellan refuse to let their mail delivery disappear for ideological reasons. The Conservative government is well aware that seniors and people with reduced mobility are the primary victims of these measures.

Why then is the Conservative government supporting these cuts and doing nothing to restore postal services in Laval?

Status of Women December 10th, 2014

Mr. Speaker, violence against Inuit women and girls is 14 times higher than the national average.

Despite that, the Conservatives are spending less than 1% of their so-called action plan on this scourge. Rebecca Kudloo, president of Pauktuutit Inuit Women of Canada, said that these paltry sums are simply offensive and discriminatory. You know what, Mr. Speaker? She is quite right.

How can the Conservatives justify that their action plan completely ignores the pressing needs that exist in our northern communities?

Correctional Service of Canada December 10th, 2014

Mr. Speaker, for a year we have been waiting for the Conservatives to take action and respond to the recommendations from the inquiry into the tragic death of Ashley Smith, but the minister prefers to continue to avoid the question.

In the meantime, tragic mistakes keep happening. People like Edward Snowshoe continue to be put in solitary confinement.

How many more inmates with mental health issues will have to die before the Minister of Public Safety finally takes action?

Correctional Service of Canada December 8th, 2014

Mr. Speaker, the government clearly learned nothing from Ashley Smith's tragic death. Other deaths also could have been prevented.

Edward Christopher Snowshoe, who was 24 and also struggling with mental health issues, took his own life after 162 consecutive days in solitary confinement. That is nearly six months in solitary.

When will the minister finally take action and provide better mental health care in our prisons in order to prevent other tragedies like this one?

Public Safety December 2nd, 2014

Mr. Speaker, this matter is no longer before the court. The report has now been made public.

The Integrity Commissioner's report is certainly worrisome. What is even more worrisome is the Conservative assault on auditors. The Conservatives took office in 2006 promising transparency and protection for whistleblowers, but instead, they went to court to prevent the Integrity Commissioner from publishing his report on the RCMP.

Why did the Conservatives not want this report to be released?

Petitions December 2nd, 2014

Mr. Speaker, the third petition is about my bill, Bill C-608. Many people have signed this petition to make May 5 the national day of the midwife.

Petitions December 2nd, 2014

Mr. Speaker, the second petition I would like to present is about the Gros-Cacouna oil terminal and was signed by a number of people from the north shore, Laval and Montreal. They are asking the federal government to reverse its decision and reject the Gros-Cacouna oil terminal proposal.

Petitions December 2nd, 2014

Mr. Speaker, I have three petitions to present to the House today. The first is about suspending the deportation of an individual residing in Laval.

Privacy December 1st, 2014

Mr. Speaker, we knew that the government is not exactly the paragon of transparency, but frankly, we had no idea how bad it was.

Telecommunications companies want to disclose how many times they share subscriber information with the police, but the government is stopping them, supposedly for security reasons.

Why is the minister preventing telecom companies from finally being transparent?

Public Safety November 27th, 2014

Mr. Speaker, what is troubling is that the government is trying to deny its responsibility when it comes to the integrity of the RCMP.

This government is spending its time trying to suppress the integrity commissioner's report instead of addressing the reprehensible behaviour within the RCMP.

What is the point of having a Public Sector Integrity Commissioner if he cannot look into shortcomings in our federal police service? The minister really needs to take responsibility and stop hiding behind the courts.

What will he do to ensure integrity within the RCMP?
