Anti-terrorism Act, 2015  Mr. Speaker, let me start by saying how proud I am of our leader and our party for taking a principled stand against this flawed piece of legislation.

Nááts’ihch’oh National Park Reserve Act  Mr. Speaker, the question is a logical one. However, I think we often tend to make decisions based on short-term gain in our country.

Nááts’ihch’oh National Park Reserve Act  Mr. Speaker, I wish to thank my colleague from Sherbrooke for his question. It is obviously important to protect certain places in our country for the future.

Agriculture committee  Thank you. I appreciate that. Mr. Easter finds himself in a tough spot. The tough spot he finds himself in is that he supported Mr. Atamanenko's bill at all of its stages. Mr. Atamanenko's bill ran out of time. Forget the fact that I can't remember the number of months it sat
