Telecommunications  Mr. Speaker, two years ago, the CRTC announced that a 50-megabyte download speed Internet is a basic service all Canadians should have access to. The government claimed it would make that a reality. However, now the details are out, and we can see that the Liberals have failed ag

Public Safety  Mr. Speaker, once again the Liberals talk big and then fail to deliver. On giving Communist-China-controlled Huawei access to our mobile network, the public safety minister has said that we will check their equipment, do not worry, but the reality is that equipment will often b

Trans Mountain Pipeline Project Act  Mr. Speaker, as a fellow British Columbia MP representing a riding that the proposed Kinder Morgan pipeline expansion will pass through, citizens and communities have a vested interest in this project. In this place we often talk about the very large numbers, such as a $7.4 bil

B.C. Wine Industry  Mr. Speaker, yet another concession the current Liberal government made in the USMCA was to allow U.S. interests to dictate what wine can be sold in British Columbia's grocery stores. For many small family-run wineries, this might see them crowded off the shelves in favour of big

Multilateral Instrument in Respect of Tax Conventions Act  Mr. Speaker, I am sure if the member of Parliament for Oshawa could say what he really wants, he would probably want to direct that question to the member for Calgary Rocky Ridge because he is that capable of a member. I would simply say results, results, results. Let us bear in

Multilateral Instrument in Respect of Tax Conventions Act  Mr. Speaker, I would say more generally that this is a multilateral instrument and that this is actually good for developed countries, particularly the OECD countries, which do have a problem of, basically, jurisdiction shopping for the best tax-related policies. Again, there is

Multilateral Instrument in Respect of Tax Conventions Act  Mr. Speaker, I would say that if the member has information about companies that are doing that, she should deliver that to the CRA personally. It is simply just saying that tax evasion happens. Yes, it does probably in many cases happen, but without specifics, it is very difficu

Multilateral Instrument in Respect of Tax Conventions Act  Mr. Speaker, it is always an honour to stand on behalf of the citizens of Central Okanagan—Similkameen—Nicola. I will be sharing my time with the very capable member for Calgary Rocky Ridge, who in addition to his duties as member of Parliament, also stands as the shadow minister

International Trade  Mr. Speaker, the Liberals are targeting Canadian small businesses yet again. For what reason? It is for being small. They are refusing to allow firms with under 200 employees to apply for tariff relief. This means that small businesses are being forced to either eat those costs o

Multilateral Instrument in Respect of Tax Conventions Act  Mr. Speaker, let me first publicly congratulate the member opposite for her appointment to parliamentary secretary. That is a big achievement in this place. I would like to go right to the subject of base erosion and profit sharing. The hon. Jim Flaherty put this in budget 2014,

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, there is outrage from the family, outrage from veterans and outrage from Canadians in regard to this specific case. Now the department has changed the policy, but the minister has shown less than to dignify us with a proper response. The member wants to talk about

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, I would certainly want to hear the member of Parliament for Selkirk—Interlake—Eastman answer the member for Saanich—Gulf Islands, but she will have to settle for another member from B.C. I go back to when we see a policy and a specific case where it is fundamentally

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, I would like to thank the member of Parliament for Selkirk—Interlake—Eastman for his continuing support for veterans, both in his riding and across the country. I have some very serious concerns about how this particular debate has been unfolding. Let us start with

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, I want this member to maybe take a moment and be mindful that it was actually the Paul Martin Liberal government that introduced the new veterans charter. The minister of the day had to present it to this place and be accountable for it. The Conservative Party, under

National Defence Act  Mr. Speaker, from my review of the legislation that we are debating today, there is no statutory review within five years. I do think that anytime we make major adjustments to a system, there should be a proper review. Does the hon. member agree with that assessment?
