Firearms Act  Mr. Speaker, one cannot take simple things and then equate it to a larger whole. I think the member has misconstrued the actual provisions in Bill C-42 in the previous Parliament. The Minister of Public Safety, at the advice of his technical firearms committee, could bring a re

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, first of all, the Conservatives are saying that if the government wants to tax, then it needs to give parliamentarians the information so we can debate it and let Canadians decide. That is number one. That is the main focus of today's debate. Number two, the member

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, it is very easy to answer this question. First of all, I do not have feelings about climate change because, again, I believe science. If we look at the science and modelling, there are some inconsistencies, but I believe there is a broad consensus among scientists t

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, I will be sharing my time with the member for Calgary Nose Hill. As always, it is an honour to rise in this place to represent my constituents. This is an important topic. It is not a secret that the Liberal government believes strongly in its carbon tax. In fact,

Carbon Pricing  Mr. Speaker, these Liberals attack small businesses time and time again. They are forcing job creators to pay a carbon tax that will increase input costs, and the Prime Minister refuses to tell them how much it will cost. Small businesses know that the misguided tax will impact

Fisheries Act  Mr. Speaker, common sense should be a big part of public policy, and specifically so if we are going to be asking for farmers and municipalities to work with the federal government. As a city councillor, I remember in 2008 we came across a case in which we could not build a stair

Budget Implementation Act, 2018, No. 1  Mr. Speaker, this debate is supposed to be about the government justifying the use of time allocation on Bill C-74. Instead we have a minister of the crown who is actually engaging in debate when we are supposed to be hearing the government justify time allocation. She said tha

Budget Implementation Act, 2018, No. 1  Madam Speaker, simply put, parliamentary democracy involves both the government trying to present an agenda and the opposition trying to question that agenda, and to use procedural tactics that are not available when one does not have a majority.
