Statements in the House

Petitions December 14th, 2016

Madam Speaker, I am pleased to present a petition from my riding from many residents who are concerned about community TV and media in rural and remote locations. They are calling on the government to support and ensure the survival of community TV.

Tax Convention and Arrangement Implementation Act, 2016 December 14th, 2016

Madam Speaker, I rise on a point of order. I believe you will find unanimous consent to allow me to table a petition. I know with all the Christmas greetings that went on after question period, I was not able to do this during routine proceedings. It is a very well thought out petition from my constituents.

Committees of the House November 16th, 2016

Mr. Speaker, I can assure you that I am not trying to backseat drive here or anything like that.

With all due respect to my colleague from Carleton, I did have to listen to him quite a bit on Sunday, and I think the House would like to hear some good Saskatchewan wisdom. So I move:

That, the member for Cypress Hills—Grasslands be now heard.

I did see him standing up before the member started speaking.

Intergovernmental Relations October 5th, 2016

Mr. Speaker, “a betrayal”; that is how Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall has described the Prime Minister's disgraceful carbon tax ultimatum, issued at the very moment that Canada's premiers were already meeting to discuss climate change strategies.

While the provinces are working hard to co-operate and collaborate on strategies to fight climate change, the Prime Minister prefers to issue unilateral ultimatums in an area of clear provincial jurisdiction.

As we have already seen, the Liberals' continued hostility toward the energy industry has already cost thousands of jobs across the country.

In my own riding of Regina—Qu'Appelle, dozens of workers at EVRAZ Regina were laid off this August from their jobs manufacturing steel pipe for energy pipelines. Now thousands more jobs will be threatened across Saskatchewan and the country. Worse, the Prime Minister is promising that he will unilaterally impose a Saskatchewan-specific tax.

Make no mistake, the Prime Minister's Ottawa-knows-best scheme of proposing a massive carbon tax is a cold-hearted attack on working families.

I call on the member for Regina—Qu'Appelle to do the right thing. He should stand with his premier, with his province, and quit the Liberal caucus—
