(Bill C-100. On the Order: Government Orders)
June 19, 2019—Resuming consideration of the motion of Mr. Trudeau (Prime Minister), seconded by Ms. Chagger (Leader of the Government in the House of Commons), —That Bill C-100, An Act to implement the Agreement between Canada, the United States of America and the United Mexican States, be now read a second time and referred to the Standing Committee on International Trade.
Deferred recorded division on the amendment of Ms. Hardcastle (Windsor—Tecumseh), seconded by Mr. Masse (Windsor West), —That the motion be amended by deleting all the words after the word “That” and substituting the following:
“the House decline to give second reading to Bill C-100, An Act to implement the Agreement between Canada, the United States of America and the United Mexican States, because it:
(a) fails to improve labour provisions that are necessary to protect good jobs;
(b) allows for an extension of drug patents that will significantly increase the cost of medicine for Canadians;
(c) leaves the environment vulnerable due to the absence of clear, enforceable protection provisions;
(d) is being rushed through the legislative process, without adequate time and attention for such a crucial trade agreement;
(e) will shift the levers of power within the economy away from governments and workers, in favour of corporations, by weakening public regulations on public health and the environment;
and (f) puts the poorest and most marginalized Canadians at further risk by failing to ensure the protection of human rights, gender equality and inclusive economic growth.”.
