Agriculture committee  Thank you very much, Mr. Boehm. I'll ask you, committee members, to identify who you want to direct the questions to, as we have someone on video and he can't see who you're looking at. In our first go, we have Mr. Atamanenko, please. You have five minutes. I will keeping our

Agriculture committee  So much for the mushy stuff. We'll get down to business now. One of my reasons for existence around this place, as most of you know, has been to look at things through the lens of food sovereignty and the ability for us to control our food supply. I've often spoken out against t

Petitions  Mr. Speaker, there are 200 names of citizens from Kamloops, British Columbia on this petition. The petitioners are calling for us to adopt legislation requiring all genetically modified products and ingredients to be labelled as GMOs, thereby allowing consumers to make informed

Military Contribution Against ISIL  Mr. Speaker, we seem to pick and choose. We did not do anything in the Congo, where five million people have been slaughtered under conditions that are just as atrocious as, if not even worse than, what is happening right now. We have not gone into other areas where we could have

Military Contribution Against ISIL  Mr. Speaker, that is a good question. What we are debating in the House is a motion to go either one way and start bombing attacks or to change that part and say we will transport weapons to those who need them. If the government motion passes today, it will put in regulations.

Military Contribution Against ISIL  Mr. Speaker, I am very happy to share this time with my hon. colleague, the member for Skeena—Bulkley Valley.

Agriculture committee  Thank you very much, Mr. Chair. Two questions in one day is not too bad. Thank you so much for being here, folks. We've been reassured by the minister that there's no concern with regard to saving seed. There has been some discussion, and I'm not quite clear on this in my own

Agriculture committee  Thank you. My second question obviously reflects other concerns. I know some have been addressed, but I'd like your take on this. We talked about the differences between 78 and 91. You brought out some positive aspects of UPOV 91. There are some concerns. The National Farmers U

Agriculture committee  Thanks, Minister. You talked about the farmer's ability to save seed. I'm still not clear, so I'd just like some clarification. For example, when storing the saved seed, does the farmer need the permission of the holder of the plant breeders' rights?

Agriculture committee  Does the breeder have the right to charge royalties as well? Obviously, he does.
