Indigenous Peoples and Canada's Justice System   the light on something that most regular Canadians did not even know existed, that the crown prosecutor or the defence can remove individuals from jury selection just for the colour of their skin or what they look like. This is something that crosses all political lines. It is clear

Business of Supply   is due to the fact that we have an income tax system that is stacked against regular Canadians. Just last month, we saw figures showing that the average income of Canada's wealthiest CEOs is 200 times that of the average Canadian worker. There is no doubt that we are seeing a massive

Canada Elections Act   a lot of smaller donations from regular Canadians, and we continue to get them. As a party, we do not rely on wealthy elites and pay-to-play events and such fundraisers. We really do not. In fact, I am told that opposition Conservatives just had their best fourth quarter ever

Canada Elections Act   be forced to go to ordinary Canadians on main street and make their case. That is a promise Canadians were and are on board with. Clearly, that is not a concern for the Liberal Party or for the Prime Minister. Regular Canadians do not have billionaire friends who invite them to vacation

Canada Elections Act   was caught. Clearly, the Prime Minister believes that these laws are meant only for regular Canadians and not for him. That is why we have an issue with this bill. It is simply a PR stunt designed to cover up the fact that the Liberals are engaged in unethical behaviour, and it does

Citizenship and Immigration committee   the average amount of money that a regular Canadian would cost—were based on fictitious information. There was no actual true calculation of the cost for the average person, so one issue that needs to be carefully studied by the committee is how authorities come to the number they apply

Canadian Heritage committee   facilitate that, fine, but I think a lot of it is on the backs of regular Canadian citizens. We engage, and we've been 25 years involved in an interfaith coalition of Sikhs, Muslims, and Hindus, so part of it is not only doing it but also letting other people know it's there.

National Defence committee   of the Canadian election observers—and we sent 500 to one election, even over the objections of the OSCE, which opposes bilateral electoral missions upon principle—were wearing orange sashes. One only needs to read regular Canadian press releases to know that we are on the side of the Kiev

Business of Supply  . This whole debate forces us to question his sincerity, the Prime Minister's sincerity, and what their private holdings actually are. This is one more example of how far removed policy makers are from regular Canadians. If there is one thing a finance minister can to do alleviate public

Finance committee   oil and gas, and building pipelines. Additionally, since February 2016, we have been travelling across the country speaking with regular Canadians, who tell us they want pipelines and access to Canadian oil and gas. They recognize pipelines would mean thousands of Canadian jobs

Canadian Bill of Rights   to make life more affordable for regular Canadians. Although the Liberals often boast about their purported investments in housing, it has largely turned out to be a game of smoke and mirrors. One of the foremost examples of the government's failure to deliver is the recent

Karen VecchioConservative

Health committee   we're going to check the alcohol level of that beer and make sure it's at the right level. That doesn't happen, so I think a lot of these concerns are overblown. I would prefer to see a legally regulated market that's open and accessible for regular Canadians to enter

Canada Elections Act   to gain. Canadians want a government that is going to do what is best for its people, and the Liberals are not going to find that through consultations at $1,500 fundraisers; they are going to find it through speaking with regular Canadians and working on their behalf. I know my time

Canada Elections Act   of 2017 was that their fundraising dried up. When they had to go to regular Canadians and ask them to contribute to their party, it dried up. The Conservative Party raised double what the Liberals raised, and if we add in the leadership candidates, it was triple what the Liberals

Cannabis Act   States. Canadians have been refused for honestly speaking about their past indiscretions. Does this mean the Prime Minister is simply above regular Canadians? The NDP has a 45-year history of championing marijuana decriminalization. Changes to the law are long overdue, especially
