Indigenous Affairs  Mr. Speaker, three years ago, this was a key election promise by the government. We know that food costs in the north are absolutely staggering. After going through the process and withdrawing from the consultations, an Inuit leader told CBC that she had lost all hope. Listen to

Indigenous Affairs  Mr. Speaker, this morning we learned that the five major Inuit organizations pulled out of the government's working group on food security. It was clear from the start that the Liberals had no intention of listening. The consultations were “just tokenism and optics...so they ca

Canada Labour Code  Mr. Speaker, this is one of those bills on which there was substantial work done at committee. I was not on the committee, but I understand that amendments were accepted by parties on all sides of the House, and a number of Senate amendments were also accepted. Where amendments w

Canada Labour Code  Mr. Speaker, when that story first came out, I asked myself who has not done something in the past that was perhaps wrong and that the person feels uncomfortable about. What does one do when one recognizes something? Yes, it was 18 years ago, but the Prime Minister himself has sa

Canada Labour Code  Mr. Speaker, I agree that we have made tremendous progress and are actually talking about this issue, but there is a lot more we need to do. I have to go back to the comment of the Prime Minister that he was a feminist prime minister, and then he said, “often a man experiences a

Canada Labour Code  Mr. Speaker, I will be sharing my time with the member for Sherwood Park—Fort Saskatchewan. I would not say that I am pleased to rise to speak in the debate today, but I think it is an important debate we are having on a very important issue that impacts women and men throughou

Multilateral Instrument in Respect of Tax Conventions Act  Mr. Speaker, the Liberals consistently talk about how they are going to work hard for the middle class and those trying to join it. I had a case in my office just last week involving a young mother with four children. She home schools the children and they have lived pretty hea

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, today we have continually heard the same points from the Liberals in almost every speech. They are not recognizing that they are in government. They are the executive branch. Sometimes we get it wrong. Sometimes our system gets it wrong. However, when they are in gov

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, one thing that has come out in the debate today is the fact that the father of the victim knew about the transfer because of the Victims Bill of Rights that the previous Conservative government in the last Parliament introduced. It created important support for the v

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, what troubled me about the speech the member just gave was his talk that Conservatives want laws to be based on one case. What we have clearly said from the beginning is that sometimes we recognize an injustice from one case, and that action needs to be taken. That w

Business of Supply  Madam Speaker, if the Liberals believe it is outside the law for politicians to give directions to CSC on the security classification of prisoners, do they believe that section 17 of the corrections and conditional release regulations is also unlawful?

Business of Supply  Madam Speaker, I first want to correct the record. This has never been about healing lodges having a role to play in our correctional system. Certainly the Conservatives, as the member indicated by referring to the report, recognize that there is an appropriate role for them. Wha

Justice  Mr. Speaker, healing lodges are for criminals who are getting ready to transition back into society. It is job training, language, culture and household maintenance. Healing lodges are not appropriate for Tori Stafford's murderer who is not eligible for parole until 2031. Her cri

Justice  Mr. Speaker, despite all of the money they spent on deliverology, they clearly did not learn any lessons. We have something here that is absolutely absurd. We have someone who is a murderer who is in a facility where children play. It has been less than nine years since she commi

Orange Shirt Day  Mr. Speaker, like many across the country, the first day of school for my family meant new shoes, new clothes and that famous awkward family photo. It also included the children returning excitedly home at the end of the day to share stories about their new teacher and who they g
