Alberta Rural Crime Task Force  Mr. Speaker, rural crime is rising in Alberta and across Canada. To help address this, myself and 11 other colleagues formed the Alberta rural crime task force.

Energy Industry  Mr. Speaker, yesterday Canada's Conservatives forced an emergency debate on the crisis facing Alberta's energy industry, a crisis brought about by the Prime Minister who has said numerous times he wants to phase out Alberta oil. By cancelling the once approved northern gateway,

Democratic Reform  Mr. Speaker, the Liberals have admitted, on multiple occasions, that Russia interfered in the last federal election, but they have refused to give any details to Canadians.

Firearms  Mr. Speaker, the Liberal government has proven time and time again that they are soft on crime and do not prioritize the safety of Canadians. Rural crime in communities across Canada has been steadily increasing, and law enforcement has been unable to mount an adequate response.

Justice  Mr. Speaker, it is clear that the Liberal government is soft on crime and way too focused on coddling criminals instead of supporting victims and ensuring the safety of Canadians. In the last month, we have seen the Liberals proactively welcome convicted terrorists back to Cana

The Environment  Mr. Speaker, I listened with great interest to my colleague's speech and I want to thank him for bringing this important issue before the House of Commons. I do not think anybody in the world disagrees that disposable plastic and the issues it causes in the environment are pervas

Veterans Affairs  Mr. Speaker, enough is enough. The family is right here in Ottawa, and it deserves an answer. The real question is this. Does the Prime Minister think this murderer should be getting veteran benefits? If he does, he should say so. If he does not, he should tell us what he is goin

Natural Resources  Mr. Speaker, right now Canada is the cheapest place in the world to buy oil. Our oil is so cheap we are practically giving it away, all because the Liberals will not get pipelines built. This is preventing us from getting Canadian oil to new markets and is costing our economy, es

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, for most of the day so far I have listened to my colleague across the way who seems to be the point man for the government in the House on this today. What the member fails to understand is this is a one-off case. The government, the minister, the Prime Minister and

Business of Supply  Madam Speaker, because the minister beat around the bush and did not get to the point during his speech, I will get to the point directly with him. Does the minister personally believe that it is wrong for a convicted cop killer who is not a veteran himself to receive veterans b

Committees of the House  Mr. Speaker, there is nothing complicated about understanding that Saudi Arabia is sunny and very warm—we might even call it a hot desert climate—in which case the peak time of use for electricity is during the day for air conditioning.

Committees of the House  Mr. Speaker, I spent a number of years on the natural resources committee in the previous parliament and parliaments before that.
