Indigenous Affairs  Mr. Speaker, we note that the commissioners of the national inquiry for missing indigenous women and girls asked for a two-year extension, but the minister granted it six months. Why only six months? Because, to quote the minister, “it would be important for the government to hav

Main Estimates, 2018-19  Mr. Speaker, I find it ironic that the Liberals, who so appreciated both the former PBO and the current PBO in the last Parliament, did not listen to what they said. To be quite frank, the Parliamentary Budget Officer is intimately knowledgeable about the machinations of governme

Main Estimates, 2018-19  Mr. Speaker, I think the member for Elmwood—Transcona speaks to the issue perfectly. It already is a challenge for the opposition to hold government to account. When the government creates these sorts of changes where we do not even have a proper and due process, it is even more

Main Estimates, 2018-19  Mr. Speaker, what we will be voting against is the creation of a process that has allowed for such limited scrutiny. The Liberals will be asking us to vote for a slush fund that is worth over $7 billion tonight. How can we, as parliamentarians, and the backbenchers as well, vote

Main Estimates, 2018-19  Mr. Speaker, I am very pleased to speak this evening to the main estimates, and of course, the important vote tonight. I think this is one of the most important debates we have in this House. We are talking about spending a lot of Canadians' hard-earned tax dollars. There are m

Apology for Residential Schools  Mr. Speaker, 10 years ago today, Prime Minister Harper gave a heartfelt apology to former students and their families for Canada's role in the operation of residential schools. In it he stated: The Government of Canada built an educational system in which very young children we

Employment  Mr. Speaker, here is another victim of the Liberals' summer jobs attestation requirement. One of Nova Scotia's must-see attractions, the Bangor Sawmill Museum, has had to close its doors. This has been a staple of the community since before Confederation. The member for West No

Taxation  Mr. Speaker, a year ago, B.C. suffered the worst wildfires in our history. The government said it would be there for us, but it did not last much past the photo-op. We brought to the attention of the finance minister a very important issue around salvaged woods and their capita

Fisheries Act  Mr. Speaker, as my colleague indicated, last week the Liberals voted for a piece of legislation, Bill C-262, to implement the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. In that bill, they made very specific commitments, especially around article 19, under which laws of g

Criminal Code  Mr. Speaker, I listened to my colleague and what I heard was a terrific amount of concern for people who have committed crimes. I know there have been many cases, and there has been one recently in my riding, where victims simply feel that justice has not been done. I would like

National Security Act, 2017  Mr. Speaker, I know that my colleague talked about some of the amendments we proposed, which he thought would help bring this bill to a better place. Could he maybe speak in general terms about what should have been accepted as amendments, and how they would have improved the bil

Indigenous Affairs  Mr. Speaker, three years ago, a young Cree girl was suffering chronic pain and was taking daily medication for a jaw misalignment. She simply needed $6,000 in dental work. Instead of showing compassion and common sense, the government decided to take Josey and her family to court

Questions Passed as Orders for Returns  With regard to the Urban Indigenous Strategy, formerly known as the Urban Aboriginal Strategy, from 2013 to 2018: which organizations received funding through this strategy, and how much did each receive, broken down by year?

Export and Import Permits Act  Mr. Speaker, again, if it looks like a duck and it walks like a duck, it is a duck. In my opinion, Bill C-71 is a backdoor registry, and Bill C-47 is increasing the complications for our law-abiding hunters and fishers. I think this answers the member's questions. It is a long g
