Transportation  Mr. Speaker, more and more people are using active transportation. That is great, but we need to adapt accordingly. Rosemont—La Petite-Patrie has one of the highest rates of cyclist and pedestrian death in Quebec. From 2006 to 2015, 17 pedestrians and eight cyclists were killed

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague for his comments and question. I will indeed be flying to Poland for COP24, but I will also be investing in planting trees to offset the carbon footprint of my trip, in order to be consistent with the proposals we are putting on the table. With

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, it is too bad that the parliamentary secretary is completely twisting the words of my colleague from Sherbrooke. My colleague never said that trade agreements were useless, quite the contrary. The NDP believes in trade, as long as it is fair, equitable and respectfu

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague from Sherbrooke for his excellent speech. I will attempt to continue in the same vein. I really liked the fact that he called the Conservative motion an omnibus motion. It touches on so many subjects that we could write a speech about any one we

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, those watching at home right now must be confused because what is happening on both sides is rather mind-boggling. On one hand, we have the Conservatives, who are denying science, who think that pollution should be free and who have no plan. On the other, we have t

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague for her speech. She is right about one thing. The Liberal government did indeed give four industrial sectors, including the cement sector, a gift of 10% with regard to their greenhouse gas emissions. That is completely ridiculous given their rhe

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, I am pleased to rise to speak to the Conservative Party's opposition motion. Unfortunately, the motion is overly ambitious and has way too much going on. We agree that there has to be a price on pollution and that polluters cannot be allowed to keep doing what they a

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship  Mr. Speaker, there have been discussions among the parties and if you seek it I believe you would find consent to the following motion, seconded by the member for Edmonton Strathcona: That the House call on the Prime Minister and the Minister of the Environment and Climate Change

The Environment  Mr. Speaker, the truth is that they are going to miss their targets. It is pathetic. In 2015, the Prime Minister portrayed himself as a brave knight who would fight the malevolent forces of climate change. Three years later, it is becoming clear that this was nothing but a fair

Poverty Reduction Act  Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague for his speech and his passion. His voice is practically still ringing in the House. I am going to ask a very practical question. Looking at the reality in my riding, Rosemont—La Petite-Patrie, I see that there are 14,000 people who earn less t

Member for Brampton East  Mr. Speaker, we cannot say it enough. This is a bad agreement for farmers and aluminum and steel workers. When he was elected, the Prime Minister said he was going to do things differently. He said he would put an end to conflicts of interest and any appearance of conflict of in

Member for Brampton East  Mr. Speaker, the government does not seem to be taking this very seriously. This is not trivial. When the member for Brampton East sat on the Standing Committee on Finance, he asked some very troubling questions, such as, “How many resources does FINTRAC have to go after each li

Resumption and Continuation of Postal Service Operations Legislation  Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague from Vancouver Kingsway for his excellent question. I think that an agreement would have been negotiated by the two parties, and that workers would have exercised their right to use pressure tactics and would have won some concessions, but not a

Resumption and Continuation of Postal Service Operations Legislation  Mr. Speaker, I will provide a two-part response to my colleague's question. First, the NPD cares about SMEs. The rotating strike is not currently preventing SMEs from getting their parcels or from doing business as usual. They are not currently in crisis. With regard to the fa

Resumption and Continuation of Postal Service Operations Legislation  Mr. Speaker, all I can say to my colleague is that making an approximation does not make something true or credible. In all honesty, I have never been part of a government that imposed return-to-work legislation against the will of unions and workers. I hope to have the opportuni
