The Environment  Mr. Speaker, the Liberals have suddenly realized that green-lighting the expansion of Trans Mountain will not wash, especially after declaring a climate emergency the day before. Now they are trying to create a diversion by saying that any profits from the pipeline will go into a

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, I listened closely to my colleague's speech. I feel that the Liberals are taking action at the last minute.

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague from Louis-Saint-Laurent for his highly relevant question.

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, I listened with interest to the parliamentary secretary's speech and his endless litany of ineffective half-measures. I am not impressed. After four years in power, the Liberal record on the environment is absolutely abysmal, especially when it comes to reducing gr

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague for his speech. One thing is certain: once the Conservatives sink their teeth into something, they hold on tight and do not let go. Unfortunately, they do not have an alternative plan. The Liberal government is being hypocritical. It says one t

The Environment  Mr. Speaker, we know the Liberals broke their promise to eliminate oil subsidies. Along with the rest of the G20, they also promised to eliminate inefficient subsidies. The problem is that they do not understand the meaning of the word “inefficient”. The commissioner of the envi
