Seniors  Mr. Speaker, in celebration of National Seniors Day, I visited many seniors homes, talking and listening to their concerns. One concern of seniors is identity theft. In light of a major security breach in a credit agency, when will the Liberal government take action to stop iden

World Elder Abuse Awareness Day  Mr. Speaker, each year June 15 marks World Elder Abuse Awareness Day. Elder abuse is an important human rights issue we all can bring awareness to, and help ensure that older generations have a right to live a life of dignity. This means a life free from all forms of abuse, inc

Cannabis Act  Mr. Speaker, that is exactly the point. Liberals have been saying that they are feminists and that they value women, but right at the beginning, when they appointed women to these ministerial positions, they had already carved out some female ministers who were not good enough to

Cannabis Act  Mr. Speaker, that is exactly what I have been saying. The Liberals only pay lip service. The fact that they do not even have a ministry for seniors, a minister of state, or a full minister for the benefit of seniors shows that they do not care. This is exactly why we have said we

Cannabis Act  Mr. Speaker, as I mentioned earlier, I have no problem with equal work or equal pay. However, Bill C-25 has not addressed the other equal supports. If only the salaries are raised, without giving these now full ministers the true support they need, it is just window dressing. Tha

Cannabis Act  Mr. Speaker, I am pleased to rise again this evening to speak to Bill C-24, regarding the Salaries Act. This bill aims to change five important aspects of ministerial roles and designations. These include the creation of new positions, the removal of several important positions,

Cannabis Act  Mr. Speaker, as a former minister of state for seniors, I think I have the most powerful authority to tell the government side what exactly Bill C-24 means. If the Liberals really believed in elevating women, they should have been given full ministerial positions. Is the governm

Cannabis Act  Madam Speaker, I was quoting what the paper said. I strongly encourage the government to slow down the legislation and get the regulatory framework in place. Hopefully, we can then bring together a more effective and secure piece of legislation.

Cannabis Act  Madam Speaker, the most important thing we have not done successfully for a number of years is education. Whenever we talk about prevention of drug use, there are always many things that we should have done. The whole reason we have an increased number of young people is, number

Cannabis Act  Madam Speaker, I think the most important thing is not even “have our kids tried that?” That is the safest thing. Looking at the drug to see if the quality of the drug is good or giving the best cocaine to the people at the injection site, this is following the same argument. Tha

Cannabis Act  Madam Speaker, I rise today to discuss the proposed legislation in Bill C-45, related to the legalization of cannabis, more commonly known as marijuana. Bill C-45 has been put forward on a rushed timeline. Many practical implications of Bill C-45 are to be decided by provincial

Criminal Code  Mr. Speaker, this is not what their task force advised. They advised that before any legislation is pushed through, these tools need to be there. How can we measure whether a young person or an adult is really impaired if the tool is not there? It is really unrealistic that the g

Criminal Code  Mr. Speaker, there are people of different cultures in my riding, and I can give the member true stories. One of my constituents complained to me that she was pulled over by a police officer and she was trembling because she did not understand why she was stopped by police. Becau
