Public Services and Procurement  Mr. Speaker, we learned yesterday that as early as summer 2015, IBM was advising the government that Phoenix was not ready to go. For those keeping score, that means departmental reviews, public sector unions, and the principal private contractor itself were saying that Phoenix w

Pinawa Nuclear Research Reactor  Mr. Speaker, I rise to voice concerns about the current plan to decommission the nuclear research reactor in Pinawa, Manitoba, located just 500 metres from the Winnipeg River. When the reactor was built, the federal government promised to restore the site to greenfield conditions

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, maybe before we get to particular numbers, it is important to speak about this. There seems to be some confusion among my colleagues from other parties about the NDP position on free trade, which is surprising because we have been quite consistent for a long time on

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, in this case I do actually think that one of the best things to do is to hear from Daniel Jean. That is part of getting to the bottom of what has happened—

Business of Supply  She asked for other ideas about what we might do, Mr. Speaker, and I am suggesting that the option on the table is the best option for the time being, because part of the problem is a lack of information about what happened during a key event. To get that information is a first s

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, the operative words were “two-way trade”. I am right, even if I did not have the specific number right, that most of that overall two-way trade is going in the other direction. That is the issue. If the member wants to define a real substantive trade agreement as an

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, I am pleased to rise to put some thoughts about this motion on the record. Like me, I think a lot of people in Elmwood—Transcona have the impression that we would like to move on from this whole India trip issue. However, there is a reason why it is hard to do that,

Business of Supply  It was a billion. My thanks to my colleague for helping a guy out. It was a billion dollars, $250 million of which were investments from India to Canada, $750 million of which were Canada to India. That seems like an unlikely outcome for a successful trade mission from Canada to

The Budget  Madam Speaker, I understand quite well the importance of the information economy that is emerging and the role of innovation. That is why one of the major themes of my speech centred on a new innovation centre for Winnipeg, spearheaded by Red River College, which had over $40 mil

The Budget  Madam Speaker, yes, this is a real problem. It has been a recurring theme that among our Liberal representatives from Manitoba, we do not have the kinds of champions we need to get what the Liberals are calling historic levels of funding. I think there is some fun with numbers

The Budget  Mr. Speaker, I will be sharing my time with the member for Vancouver East. I thought I might start my reflections on the budget just by noticing some things in the budget that I think are a step in the right direction. I am thinking specifically of the provisions for parental l

The Budget  Madam Speaker, I wanted to pick up on some remarks of the hon. member regarding pay equity legislation, because that portion of her speech could very well have been delivered during the 2015 election. Of course, we are about two and a half years past that election. We are now clo

Official Languages  Mr. Speaker, many children outside Quebec have no choice but to attend an English school because all the census asks is whether French is their mother tongue. However, the Charter also guarantees access to French-language education to children who have a parent or sibling who wen

International Trade  Mr. Speaker, the Liberals promised to end the abuse of the temporary foreign worker program, but now they are on the cusp of signing the trans-Pacific partnership, a trade deal that is going to entrench the worst aspects of that program. Under the TPP, foreign companies are goin
