Opioid Crisis in Canada  Mr. Chair, I am very disheartened to be standing up in the House again. I remember that we stood here many years ago talking about some very tragic incidents and deaths in my riding from fentanyl. We managed, through a public health approach, to do amazing work on drinking and d

Committees of the House  Mr. Speaker, this is a very important issue. If we look at the original motion for this committee report, it was comprehensive in nature, and we supported it. It was a Liberal motion. However, what we were most challenged by was the fact that the Liberals did not do what they sai

Customs Act  Madam Speaker, could my colleague talk a little more about the issues that the Privacy Commissioner raised, and where we need to go from here?

Points of Order  Madam Speaker, my colleague brings up an important point. When we get improper text and are expected to debate it within a couple of hours, it is probably not a point of order. It is almost a point of privilege. Therefore, I want to share my concerns about the sloppiness of wha

Indigenous Affairs  Mr. Speaker, there are only 14 weeks left in this Parliament and yet the government continues to over-promise and under-deliver. How can we trust the Prime Minister's new commitments at AFN this week while his previous promises go unfulfilled? Additions to reserve are buried in a

Mackenzie Valley Resource Management Act  Mr. Speaker, the member for Chilliwack—Hope brought up a very important observation. The government talks about having consultation after consultation, but when it considers a project that is going to actually help first nations and indigenous peoples, it does not seem to ask the

Mackenzie Valley Resource Management Act  Madam Speaker, frequently the Liberals in their speeches have talked about the importance of consultation and engagement and working together in partnership. I wonder how my colleague would describe the Prime Minister, while he was in Washington, making a grand statement about a

Mackenzie Valley Resource Management Act  Madam Speaker, I am going to go to part A of the bill. I am not sure if the member is aware, but the report done by McCrank says, “the current regulatory processes in the Northwest Territories are complex, costly, unpredictable and time consuming.” To amalgamate while respecting

Mackenzie Valley Resource Management Act  Mr. Speaker, at the end of his speech, he said the Liberals would be creating a more efficient system. The reason Bill C-15 amalgamated the boards was based out the McCrank report, which had indicated some significant issues in efficiency, capacity and ability to do things. There

Mackenzie Valley Resource Management Act  Mr. Speaker, I cannot imagine Christmas holidays at the house of my colleague from Northwest Territories. When the moratorium was imposed on offshore drilling, his brother, who is the premier, was absolutely outraged. The member talks about the importance of having that conversa

Mackenzie Valley Resource Management Act  Mr. Speaker, as I understand it, and I could be corrected on this, both within the devolution agreement and the agreements, the opportunity to allow for the creation of one board was well within the structure of those agreements. I could stand to be corrected on that particular a

Mackenzie Valley Resource Management Act  Mr. Speaker, that brings up a really great point. First of all, it is absolute insult to northerners when the Prime Minister is down in the United States making a significant decision, and not only had they not been consulted, but they basically had maybe 20 minutes to get their

Mackenzie Valley Resource Management Act  Mr. Speaker, I want to point out that the Liberals did actually support Bill C-15, which is what they are now backtracking on, so I want to make that important note. The Liberals love to say that the economy and the environment go together and they are going a great job on both.

Mackenzie Valley Resource Management Act  Mr. Speaker, first of all, I would like to note that the NDP also voted for Bill C-15, so it was a pretty straightforward Northwest Territories devolution bill. The NDP members love to say that we did not care about the environment and that our environmental bills created undue
