Canada Elections Act  Mr. Speaker, I am very honoured to rise in the House today to support the bill introduced by my colleague from Terrebonne. It is an excellent bill that could improve our democracy in tangible ways. I am always very moved when we speak of the quality of our democratic systems and

Canada Elections Act  Madam Speaker, I would like to congratulate my colleague from Terrebonne on his speech and his bill. I think that any move to clean up politics and reduce the influence of money, the wealthy, and the powerful on the political scene is progress. We will be very honoured to suppor

Salaries Act  Madam Speaker, unfortunately, we live in a society where women still earn only 72% of what men earn. A lot of work remains to be done for gender parity to be achieved. The Liberal government claims to be feminist and says it wants to achieve parity and all that. However, the only

Canada Revenue Agency  Mr. Speaker, I have a story for you. Once upon a time, there was a Minister of National Revenue who had a fabulous $25-billion treasure. Sadly, the minister had an overactive imagination. The treasure was all in her head, just like her conviction that her ministry of magic has no

Public Services and Procurement  Mr. Speaker, Davie shipyard workers feel that the Liberal government has abandoned them. For lack of a short-term contract, 113 people have already lost their jobs and 800 more are at risk. Despite its fine promises, the Liberal government is asleep at the wheel. However, the nee

Canada Revenue Agency  Mr. Speaker, it is not just the finance minister who is having a rough time. The revenue minister is also in hot water. Not only can nobody find the $25 billion she keeps talking about, but also this morning two diabetes organizations held a press conference saying that either th

Canada Revenue Agency  Mr. Speaker, for weeks, the Minister of National Revenue has repeatedly said that she has recovered $25 billion that was lost to tax evasion. The only problem is that no one knows where that number came from. Where did she get that number, from the inside of a Cracker Jack box?

Ethics  Mr. Speaker, over the past few days the Minister of Finance has challenged us to ask our questions both inside and outside the House. The question I am going to ask him is one that I just asked in the foyer barely five minutes ago. We just learned that the Minister of Finance's

Indian Act  Mr. Speaker, as I did earlier, I want to highlight that it is unfortunate that the Liberal government is trying to patch up the problem rather than taking a more global approach to the issue. I would like to quote the current Minister of Justice, who was the regional chief of th

Indian Act  Mr. Speaker, it is unfortunate that the Liberal government is taking such an important and fundamental issue so lightly. It has done what my mother would call a real shoddy job. I will now quote someone who knows a thing or two about this, Perry Bellegarde, the national chief of

Ethics  Mr. Speaker, enough is enough. The Minister of Finance is in trouble up to his eyeballs. He misled the House and benefited from a bill he introduced. He put himself in a conflict of interest and he is under investigation. Somehow, thousands of shares in Morneau Shepell were sold

Public Services and Procurement  Mr. Speaker, Christmas is coming, and for many Quebeckers, that means the return of CinĂ©-cadeau. We are all very excited to see Asterix and Obelix again. However, for the families of Davie shipyard workers, the holidays are unlikely to be happy. Those workers delivered Asterix

Budget Implementation Act, 2017, No. 2  Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague for her question. She is quite right. We obviously want people in Asia to have access to more services and infrastructure. This is an appealing investment opportunity for our companies. At this time, we do not see the need to invest public money

Budget Implementation Act, 2017, No. 2  Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague for the question. It is always a pleasure to work with him in committee. A disproportionately high number of former Liberal Party ministers, organizers, and fundraisers were awarded contracts for cannabis permits. I understand the hon. member's

Budget Implementation Act, 2017, No. 2  Mr. Speaker, I want to correct my colleague. In committee, we were told in no uncertain terms that there is no hope for a return on investment in the short term. It is not a question of making money with the public investments that would be made in this bank. I agree with the h
