Taxation  Mr. Speaker, why not a gazillion dollars while they are at it? It is becoming clear that both the Liberals and Conservatives are not serious about tax fairness. Neither are willing to discuss tax avoidance carried out by big corporations, CEOs, and the use of tax havens. The L

Taxation  Mr. Speaker, the tax measures proposed by the Minister of Finance have sparked a lot of heated debate, and that is putting it mildly. They have also raised a lot of concerns. People are being bombarded with information from all sides, and it is often contradictory. The only thin

La Petite-Patrie Community Resource Centre  Mr. Speaker, even as tonnes of good food end up in the trash because of food waste, many families cannot afford fruits and vegetables because of rising food costs. What can people do about this? They can do like the Centre de ressources et d'action communautaire de La Petite-Pa

Business of Supply  Madam Speaker, I thank my colleague for his question, which gives me an opportunity to reiterate one of the first things I said in my speech. The Liberals' tax plan for the middle class does absolutely nothing for anyone who earns less than $45,000 a year. According to the Liber

Business of Supply  That is an excellent question and an excellent comment, Madam Speaker. The consultations were held in the middle of the summer. They were too short and too hastily put together, and they wrapped up yesterday. We are asking the government to hold more consultations, but also on

Business of Supply  Madam Speaker, I thank my colleague for his very legitimate question, one that we have recognized from the beginning. A salaried worker who, I would hope, is unionized, as my colleague pointed out, does not have the same opportunities as someone who is incorporated or owns a pri

Business of Supply  Madame Speaker, I would first inform you that I will be sharing my time with my illustrious colleague from Essex, whom I commend on her excellent work. She has been an excellent addition to our team since her election. I would like to begin by taking a moment to go over the Libe

Business of Supply  Madam Speaker, what does the member think about all the broken promises of the Liberals. It would be very interesting, because they were supposed to help small businesses by reducing their taxation from 11% to 9%, but they did nothing. They were supposed to study the whole system

Business of Supply  Madam Speaker, I would like to ask my Conservative colleague a question, but first I would like to remind him of something that the Liberals do not like to hear. The Liberal platform of 2015 indicated that they wanted to look at all tax measures, billions of dollars' worth, but

Foreign Affairs  Mr. Speaker, horrific scenes that we thought were a thing of the past have been playing out in Catalonia. People have been arrested, injured, and shot with rubber bullets, and seniors have been dragged out into the street simply because they wanted to vote. Madrid is using force

Foreign Affairs  I will give the government a second chance. It was about Catalonia. Mr. Speaker, the Prime Minister has made a big deal about Canada being back on the international scene, yet when it comes time to step up to the plate and condemn the violation of democratic principles in Catalo

Canadian Heritage  Mr. Speaker, the Liberals are sharing our money with the Americans. Over the past few weeks, the Liberals have been going after little fish instead of big fish. They had a golden opportunity to get it right with the Minister of Canadian Heritage's announcement, which could have

Taxation  Mr. Speaker, she could also just set up a meeting with him. It is funny how a Liberal's memory sounds like Dory's in the movie Finding Nemo. A small business tax reduction: never heard about that. However, the Liberals promised to tackle big loopholes for CEOs that cost us hund

Taxation  Mr. Speaker, only a Liberal could ignore the biggest abuse in our tax system and call it fairness. Mr. Speaker, have you ever seen an iceberg? They are as impressive as they are deceptive. In fact, they are exactly like the Liberals' tax reform. If the Minister of Finance were s
