Armenia  Mr. Speaker, “The government has decided to destroy all Armenians living in Turkey. Their existence must come to an end, however tragic the means may be; and no regard must be paid to either age or sex, or to conscientious scruples.” That is a quote from a telegram sent by Talaat

Employment Insurance Act  Mr. Speaker, I am very happy to rise today to discuss this very important matter for thousands of people in Quebec and Canada.

Employment Insurance Act  Mr. Speaker, I commend the speech and the initiative by my colleague from Salaberry—Suroît. She is right. For about a decade, the Bloc Québécois and the NDP have been proposing measures to take care of the most vulnerable workers when they fall sick, because we know that the cur

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship  Madam Speaker, the immigration backlog in this country is reaching ridiculous levels. In Quebec alone, the average wait time is 27 months. A 27-month wait time shows a blatant lack of respect for the applicants. The Liberals are yet again refusing to step up and are instead pas

Labour  Mr. Speaker, yesterday, dock workers at the port of Montreal began a partial strike refusing overtime. The management side is standing its ground, foreshadowing a labour dispute that could drag on. The Liberals have already hinted that they intend to introduce back-to-work legis

Laurentian University in Sudbury  Madam Speaker, I very much enjoyed the speech by my colleague from Edmonton Strathcona. I would like to give her the opportunity to expand on her remarks.

Laurentian University in Sudbury  Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague, the member for Orléans, for her speech. I have a very simple question for her. Did Canada's chronic underfunding of universities create the situation at Laurentian University, which is not able to continue providing valuable services to francop

Laurentian University in Sudbury  Mr. Speaker, I thank the member from La Pointe-de-l'Île for his speech. His comments are sometimes a bit confused and unclear. He throws a lot of numbers around. He even said that in Quebec, francophone students are the minority in French schools. I did not quite understand what

Laurentian University in Sudbury  Madam Speaker, I thank my colleague for that fundamental question. Access to services and training is one side of it, but midwives can then provide care and use the expertise they gained at university. The demand for the midwifery program was high because it meets a need in the

Laurentian University in Sudbury  Madam Speaker, French is indeed fragile and in decline everywhere in Canada, including in Quebec. It is unfortunate that French educational institutions are not being given more resources, because there is a demand for education in French. We see it in elementary schools, high s

Laurentian University in Sudbury  Madam Speaker, the effect is not only major, it is absolutely disastrous. Unfortunately, I have to remind my Conservative colleague that former Conservative governments have not exactly helped fix the problem. Cuts to provincial transfers for post-secondary education made the si

Laurentian University in Sudbury  Madam Speaker, I thank my colleague from Timmins—James Bay for his passionate speech on this dramatic event. I would like him to elaborate on the fact that the Liberals always court the francophone vote outside Quebec—

Laurentian University in Sudbury  Madam Speaker, thank you for clarifying that. I was about to ask my hon. colleague from Timmins—James Bay a question, but I will go ahead with my own speech after the really impressive one he just gave. It will be along the same lines as the question I was going to ask. Each yea

Criminal Code  Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague for his speech. I would like to talk abut something that is critically important to us. We are talking about drug trafficking. We must obviously do everything we can to put an end to it, because it affects our youth in particular and many peopl

Criminal Code  Mr. Speaker, I thank my Conservative colleague for his speech. This is yet another example of taking a very harsh approach to safety and security issues. The Conservative Party tends to go overboard with turning these issues into legal and police matters. I would like to hear m
