Statements in the House

Budget Implementation Act, 2016, No. 2 December 2nd, 2016

Mr. Speaker, what the member just said is factually incorrect.

How can the member say that when he knows full well that the guaranteed income supplement is affecting those individual seniors making less than $20,000 in a tangible way, and when we are lifting tens of thousands of children out of poverty?

What the member just said is factually incorrect. Does the member understand what this budget is actually doing for a majority of Canadians?

Budget Implementation Act, 2016, No. 2 December 2nd, 2016

Mr. Speaker, the NDP might want to reconsider in terms of how they might be voting on the issue of the budget implementation bill. The budget implementation bill ultimately implements the budget, and we see a very progressive budget.

Could the member enlighten the House as to when he believes there has been a more progressive budget than we currently have, one that does so much for so many Canadians, whether it is the tax break for the middle class, the enhancement of the Canada child benefit program, or the enhancement of the guaranteed income supplement?

It does so much for every region of our country. Why not support the budget implementation bill?

Mr. Speaker, finally, I would ask that all remaining questions be allowed to stand at this time.

Government Response to Petitions December 2nd, 2016

Mr. Speaker, pursuant to Standing Order 36(8) I have the honour to table, in both official languages, the government's response to 14 petitions.

Ethics December 2nd, 2016

Mr. Speaker, not only can I read, but I also understand.

I would again emphasize that in Canada we have some of the strictest rules around fundraising of any level of government, and our party respects those rules.

I am going to quote the Chief Electoral Officer once again in regard to Canada's political financing laws, who says they are the “most advanced and constrained and transparent” in the world.

Ethics December 2nd, 2016

Mr. Speaker, again, to make it very clear, only Canadians can actually donate to political parties.

As I have said on numerous occasions, we have some of the strictest rules around fundraising of any level of government, and our party respects those rules. Again I will quote the Chief Electoral Officer, who says that our political financing laws are the “most advanced and constrained and transparent” in the world.

Ethics December 2nd, 2016

Mr. Speaker, I think it is important that we recognize that only Canadians can actually donate.

We have some of the strictest rules around fundraising of any level of government, and our party respects those rules. I will repeat that the Chief Electoral Officer has stated that Canada's political financing laws are the “most advanced and constrained and transparent” in the world.

Ethics December 2nd, 2016

Mr. Speaker, the member opposite and Canadians have nothing to fear. We are operating within the rules. It is important that we recognize that we have the strictest rules around fundraising of any level of government and our party respects those rules.

In regard to ticketed fundraising events, the Chief Electoral Officer confirmed that every party, including the Conservative Party, in every campaign, has the same sorts of events.
