Canada Labour Code  Mr. Speaker, every time my colleague speaks, I listen with rapt attention and again, the member's speech was an amazing one. One of the things he touched on briefly that I would like him to flesh out a little more was the media complicity in some of these scenarios. I noticed th

Divorce Act  Mr. Speaker, it is not often we get to ask questions twice of the same speaker. I appreciate the opportunity to ask another question. One of the things that I have heard repeatedly on this topic is that it is easier to get a divorce in Canada than it is to cancel a cellphone con

Divorce Act  Mr. Speaker, I have been looking through this bill, and it really seems to me that the government really has the child at the centre of the changes it would be making. One of the things I was wondering, which is a bit of a tangent, is whether the member has ever heard of somethin

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, I know the member has in-depth life experience with our justice system, and he brings that wealth of knowledge to this place. I would like to thank the member for his service. I believe he was a police officer for 25 years, and maybe even longer. He served the commun

Business of Supply  Madam Speaker, constituents have been contacting me over the last couple of weeks about the outrage they are feeling about this particular case. This morning we had someone from the NDP stand up and say that we used graphic details and he was offended by that. I wonder if my hon.

Justice  Mr. Speaker, last spring I went to Washington and stood with victims of sex trafficking as they celebrated the major passing of FOSTA-SESTA in Congress, removing the existing immunity for companies that knowingly profit from sex trafficking. Now tech companies are lobbying the U.

Agriculture and Agri-Food  Mr. Speaker, a few weeks ago, winter arrived in Alberta. Snow covered the fields before the summer had officially ended, but the farming men and women of Alberta are hardy people. The rest of us might grumble about the snow, but farmers have their livelihood at stake if they cann

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, the member's colleague stood a moment ago and said that he agreed with us on the fact that this was terrible and wrong, and he said to just give them time and they would get this corrected. Could this member not say the exact same thing, say that it is wrong that th

Committees of the House  Mr. Speaker, one of the things I like to point out often when we are discussing energy projects is the fact that when the Liberal government came to power, there were several major energy projects on the table. Energy east was on the table. We had northern gateway on the table. W

Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership Implementation Act  Mr. Speaker, it is great to back in the chamber, this place of democracy in Canada.

Firearms Act  Mr. Speaker, the Liberals are continually going on the record saying that this is not a federal gun registry, and yet the bill takes the data from the old long-gun registry, which sat with the courts until the Liberals came into power and the courts handed it back to them. It mak

Firearms Act  Mr. Speaker, my best proposal is there just would be no criminals in our country. That would make everything a whole lot easier. One of the things that would work better is to ensure that our border security is a little tighter, ensure police have the proper resources to do the
