Statements in the House

Irving Whale March 14th, 1995

Mr. Speaker, my question is for the Minister of the Environment.

After hearing the hon. member for Bonaventure-Îles-de-la-Madeleine, can the minister assure this House today that refloating the Irving Whale, the barge that sank off the coast of the Magdalen Islands in 1970, does not pose an environmental threat to Magdalen Islands fishermen and residents?

Riding Of Brome-Missisquoi February 28th, 1995

Mr. Speaker, this is the first time I rise in this House and I want to take this opportunity to thank the people of Brome-Missisquoi for placing their confidence in me in the February 13 byelection.

I want to reiterate my commitment to make every effort possible to deliver the high level of service my contituents expect.

I am proud to join the forces of the Liberal Party of Canada in the House of Commons. I have asked the constituents of my riding to have confidence in the government. After less than a week on Parliament Hill I see the government will not let the Canadian population down.

The delicate financial situation of the country urgently needed to be addressed. A courageous and fair budget has been tabled. The country is now on the right track.

Senior citizens are protected, the tax burden of low and middle income families has not increased and the government will be streamlined and better managed. I undertake to be actively involved in the job creation and economic renewal process in the riding of Brome-Missisquoi and I want to thank my colleagues in the Liberal caucus who have already assured me of their support in the pursuit of these goals.
