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. Here we need to look at the long-term gain, the long-term potential of pristine areas. That is why I would like to submit that this park that Bi

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.

Rail Transportation  Mr. Speaker, for over 40 years my constituents in Castlegar, Blueberry, Genelle, and Rivervale have been able to sleep without being disturbed by trains at night.

Canada-Korea Economic Growth and Prosperity Act  Mr. Speaker, I would like to thank my colleague for his comments. As members probably know, his riding borders mine, and we work together on a number of issues. I would just like to get a straight answer, if I can.

Canada-Korea Economic Growth and Prosperity Act  Mr. Speaker, the member mentioned mining, and I would like to reiterate what he said. We have some real success stories in the area that we serve.

Canada-Korea Economic Growth and Prosperity Act  Mr. Speaker, my colleague mentioned in her speech that we on this side tried to introduce some amendments at committee.

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
