Conflict of Interest and Ethics Commissioner's Report  Mr. Speaker, on a point of order with respect to relevance, the member continues to talk about something that was debated last night.

Conflict of Interest and Ethics Commissioner's Report  Mr. Speaker, I appreciate the member's contribution here today; however, I must say that it is completely at the discretion of the government and government members as to how they respond to a motion.

Conflict of Interest and Ethics Commissioner's Report  Madam Speaker, I certainly appreciate the member's contribution today to the discussion. When it comes to transparency, in the last Parliament the Prime Minister put forward a private member's bill and made it part of his electoral commitment. Then what did we see? The Liberals p

Trans Mountain Expansion Project  Mr. Speaker, the member has been given a lot responsibility by his leader, Jagmeet Singh, who has expressed various views on this.

Budget Implementation Act, 2018, No. 1  Mr. Speaker, I certainly appreciate this member's contribution to the debate today. Absolutely, government debt is at a high when we add in the provinces.

An Act in Relation to Firearms  Madam Speaker, I have to say how disappointed I am. The minister has been a parliamentarian for many years. This is not a minority Parliament where the government sometimes has to bend to the will of other parties. Every choice the government has made, it has made to diminish the

House debate  Mr. Speaker, I rise on a point of order. I am sorry to put everyone in this position, including myself. I actually came in partway through the vote, and I was asked to jump up to vote. Could you please withdraw my name? I would never want to mislead the House.

House debate  Mr. Speaker, on a point of order. I would be terribly remiss if I did not say this, because my kindergarten teacher always told me that if you are going to bring some goodies in, you have to have some for everyone. We should be mindful of that.
