Business of Supply  Madam Speaker, it really boils down to this. I know the member has been a parliamentarian for a long time. Even in my experience as a parliamentarian provincially, for a functioning committee to work, when there is a discussion or debate we find ways to amend each other's motions

Business of Supply  Madam Speaker, I thank my colleague for her question. This is an important issue that affects Canadians' health. Health care is provided by the provinces.

Business of Supply  Madam Speaker, this is kind of what this is all about. It is about the transparency of decision-making. The Government of Canada spends billions of dollars. We need to know, especially within this response to COVID-19, exactly where those dollars have gone, how they were invested

Lobster Fishery Dispute in Nova Scotia  Mr. Speaker, I would invite the member to come visit West Nova, to visit the beautiful Acadian communities that have existed since coming back from deportation when the British kicked them out of Nova Scotia.

Lobster Fishery Dispute in Nova Scotia  Mr. Speaker, I agree with the member that it is an unauthorized fishery that is going on with Sipekne'katik, but there is an illegal fishery going on in St. Mary's Bay.

Lobster Fishery Dispute in Nova Scotia  Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague for the question. As I was not at the committee meeting, I cannot answer on behalf of my colleagues who were there.

Lobster Fishery Dispute in Nova Scotia  Mr. Speaker, I want to start by denouncing the violence happening in my region, in southwestern Nova Scotia, in the Clare and St. Marys Bay areas.

Fisheries and Oceans  Mr. Speaker, it has been over two weeks of questions about the Nova Scotia fisheries crisis without getting great answers.

Resumption of Debate on Address in Reply  Madam Speaker, I cannot get into land claims. Nova Scotia has the peace and friendship treaties of 1752. I think there were two others after that. What we are running into right now is a court decision in Marshall on how fisheries should be managed, along with access to that fish

Resumption of Debate on Address in Reply  Madam Speaker, I would like to thank my colleague. We often run into this issue when interpreting bills and court rulings.

Resumption of Debate on Address in Reply  Madam Speaker, I have two indigenous bands in West Nova, the Acadia band and the Bear River band, two very pivotal bands in the lives of Canadians.

Fisheries and Oceans  Mr. Speaker, the Marshall decision was 21 years ago. It is not a new issue. The Liberals have had five years to bring parties together in advance negotiations and the minister knew about this specific issue as it has been boiling around for about a year now.
