Justice June 18th, 2019

Mr. Speaker, free speech is the foundation of a free society, yet after erasing the statement of the member for St. Albert—Edmonton from the record, the justice committee proposed several measures to censure free speech on the Internet.

Does the government understand that the novel 1984 was meant to be a warning against the dangers of a totalitarian society and not an instruction manual?

Democratic Institutions June 10th, 2019

Mr. Speaker, there have been a series of attacks against free speech by the government recently. At the same time that it is trying to influence mainstream media with its $600-million bailout, the Liberal government wants to control what Canadians can say on social media.

Will the Minister of Democratic Institutions confirm that she is thinking about shutting down Twitter during the election if the company does not comply with her demands, yes or no?

Mr. Speaker, the People's Party of Canada agrees to apply the vote and is voting in favour of the motion.

Criminal Records Act June 3rd, 2019

Mr. Speaker, we are voting in favour of the motion.

Intergovernmental Relations May 6th, 2019

Mr. Speaker, Canada's equalization program is creating more and more division in our country. The Premiers of Alberta and Saskatchewan said that they might call a referendum on that topic. The Premier of New Brunswick agrees that the program is not helping his province to prosper.

Will the government admit that it made a mistake by renewing the equalization formula without change last year and that this unfair and inefficient program needs to be downsized and reformed?

Petitions April 10th, 2019

Mr. Speaker, I would like to present two petitions, an electronic one, E-1906, and a paper version of the same petition. They were initiated by Mr. George Browne, a resident of Ontario. They deal with the protection of our borders and note that limited, merit-based immigration is essential to Canadians' rights and well-being. They call on the Canadian government to withdraw from the United Nations global migration compact.

The two petitions contain more than 68,000 signatures.

The Environment April 4th, 2019

Mr. Speaker, earlier this week gas prices went up in the four provinces where the government imposed its carbon tax. It was reported this morning that the environment minister is also preparing to release new regulations that will push up gas prices even more.

Why does the minister falsely claim that she is making life more affordable for Canadians, when she keeps adding taxes and costly regulation?
