Natural Resources  Mr. Speaker, yesterday I heard again from oil and gas sector workers and their families, and they are still scared. Meanwhile, the Prime Minister was in France lamenting the fact that he could not phase out the Canadian energy sector fast enough. The Prime Minister's attack on th

Fisheries Act  Mr. Speaker, my colleague for Dauphin—Swan River—Neepawa is absolutely 100% correct. He has forgotten more about fisheries and the environment than the collective wisdom the House has probably ever known. We should be listening when this man speaks.

Fisheries Act  Mr. Speaker, those codes of practice that are currently in place were put in place by the previous government, and there is no need to actually change them. The entire campaign that the member and all of his colleagues ran on was based on falsehoods and misinformation to the publ

Fisheries Act  Mr. Speaker, my hon. colleague asked me a very forthright question. However, if the member wants to talk about thousands of actions, where is the litany of all of the reasons that the legislation needs to be changed in the first place? The member does not have one. Since the ch

Fisheries Act  Mr. Speaker, I am very pleased to rise in my place today to talk about this important issue. It is nice to see an injustice done to a fellow colleague undone, just before I speak on this particular issue. I was elected to this chamber in 2006. At that time, I was the proud mem

Rural Crime  “Canada's crime index rises for 1st time in 12 years, lifted by spike in Alberta”, “Landowners are free prey”, and “Elderly man beaten, robbed on rural Rocky Mountain House property”, Mr. Speaker, headlines like these are now commonplace as more and more Albertans are finding the

Oceans Act  I am not sure if he is referring to your trip to the north, Mr. Speaker, but if he is referring to my trip to the north, this is exactly what we heard. I was there with some of the colleagues from our side of the House on the fisheries committee, and we heard exactly those concer

Oceans Act  Mr. Speaker, I do not see how a single New Democrat could stand up in this House and accuse the current government of putting forward legislative changes that are in any way, shape, or form benefiting the oil and gas sector. I have been here and watching this economic disaster in

Oceans Act  Mr. Speaker, I appreciate the fact that my colleague has asked me a forthright question out of concern. I do not disagree with the premise of his question at all. The issue I have is with the rapid pace that the legislation is going to be put in place and the massive amount of p

Oceans Act  Mr. Speaker, Canadians are rightly concerned about the pace at which the current government is ramming legislation through the House. This is about the fourth time allocation motion that we have heard today and now it is going to ram through the gun registry bill without even one

Oceans Act  Mr. Speaker, I talked about the fact that it is a good idea to protect some areas. I talked about the “12, 75, 12” plan. That was a policy that I lobbied for a long time ago. The context of my speech was in making sure we get the right areas protected, that we have halibut spawni

Oceans Act  Mr. Speaker, it is truly a pleasure for me to rise and to consume about 30 minutes of this House's time on this issue. I will couch my opening remarks by saying it was a privilege for me at one point in time in my life to earn a zoology degree in fisheries and aquatic sciences

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, in a couple of hours, this House will begin voting for about 30 hours on a ways and means motion, because the Liberal government will not actually allow Daniel Jean to come to committee. For a caucus of about 186 people to vote for 30 hours to prevent one hour of tes

Privacy  Mr. Speaker, we know the Liberals hired Christopher Wylie in 2016, but they claim he did not do any work for the government. We also know he received $100,000 of taxpayers' money for services rendered. If he really did not do any work, why was he paid? Was it payback for his he

Privacy  Mr. Speaker, yesterday we learned the individual at the heart of the Facebook data leak, Christopher Wylie, was a long-time Liberal staffer. We know the Prime Minister hired him to collect information on Canadians. The Liberals claimed they never used what Mr. Wylie was offering,
