Customs Act  Mr. Speaker, I have probably broken my own record, as I have stood up four times to ask questions about this important legislation, Bill C-21. It was important for me to stand and ask questions, because Vancouver International Airport is in my riding and is actually considered

Customs Act  Madam Speaker, it is indeed my honour to stand up and speak to this very important issue of time allocation. I remember when the hon. member for Abbotsford, who is my mentor, and I stood back from this big House, Centre Block, and both of us said how privileged we have been to be

Carbon Pricing  Mr. Speaker, one of the largest challenges seniors are facing is being able to afford the basic necessities of life. We all know that when the Liberals impose a new tax grab, it hikes the cost of living and seniors are disproportionately affected. Why will the Liberals not fina
