Iraq  Mr. Speaker, the tragedy continues to unfold in Iraq. The Bush invasion of 2003 has left a toll of hundreds of thousands dead, millions of people displaced and infrastructure destroyed. According to an editorial in the Chicago Tribune, if Bush and the neo-conservatives had not pu

Safeguarding Canada's Seas and Skies Act  Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague for her question. First, I must say that I have visited that region. My colleagues and I went there two years ago at the invitation of our friend and colleague from Skeena—Bulkley Valley, who wanted us to see exactly what was happening and what

Safeguarding Canada's Seas and Skies Act  Mr. Speaker, the member's question may not have been on point, but it is pertinent to what has been going on here. I have sat with that member on agriculture committee before. We used to have minority Parliaments. We used to have give and take, debates, amendments, acceptance,

Safeguarding Canada's Seas and Skies Act  Mr. Speaker, as MPs we are often asked to say a few words on a bill that perhaps we are not really familiar with, because it may not be our domain. As usual, I looked at the talking points, which we all get, to try to find out what is relevant. I tried to pick out things that I t

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, I would like to thank my colleague for his speech. I had a chance to spend a few weeks in Australia this summer. I went to restaurants, and lo and behold, there was no tipping. I asked why there was no tipping. They said it was because they pay their people more. I f

Dairy Producers  Mr. Speaker, I would like to thank my colleague from Berthier—Maskinongé for tabling this very important motion. However, I would have much preferred not to be speaking to a motion that should not even have been necessary had the government not compromised supply management in it

Industry committee  Thank you, Mr. Côté. Thanks, gentlemen, for being here. I'm not sure who would be best to address this question. When I was in northwestern British Columbia a couple of years ago, and of course talking about a northern gateway pipeline—and the debate on the tanker traffic, but

Industry committee  Thank you very much, Mr. Chair. We really do not have a lot of time. My thanks to the witnesses for their participation. Mr. Chair, I am going to try to focus my time so that I can make some available to my colleague, Mr. Atamanenko, so that he can ask a question. My

Canada-Honduras Economic Growth and Prosperity Act  Mr. Speaker, I would like to thank my colleague for his speech and his work on this file. It is certainly well researched, and he understands the issue very clearly. The argument we hear from those who support this agreement is that we are a trading nation. We have been a tradin

Strengthening Canadian Citizenship Act  Mr. Speaker, the bottom line is that we have a system in place that works. The overwhelming majority of people who apply for citizenship and become citizens under our current system become good Canadian citizens. My parents are immigrants. Many of us here have family members who

Strengthening Canadian Citizenship Act  Mr. Speaker, I would like to mention to my colleague from Sherbrooke that I attended the graduation ceremony at a high school in my riding. I mentioned that he is the youngest MP to ever be elected to Parliament. I told the graduates to follow his example. My colleague was 19 yea

Strengthening Canadian Citizenship Act  Mr. Speaker, I am thankful to have a few minutes to speak to Bill C-24. As an interesting coincidence, I was recently reading the latest issue of Novyi Shliakh, or the New Pathway, a Ukrainian newspaper published here in Canada. On page 6 of the May 15 edition, there was an artic

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
