Corrections and Conditional Release Act  Madam Speaker, I would like to thank my colleague for his speech, for his work on this bill and for reminding us that, when it comes to this kind of reform, public safety must be our main concern.

Business of Supply  Madam Speaker, I am pleased to rise to speak to the issue of housing here in the House by asking my hon. colleague a question.

Telecommunications  Mr. Speaker, people in northeast Winnipeg are fed up with scam phone calls. They are among the thousands of Canadians who are harassed by unscrupulous con artists by phone every year. Some fall victim to these schemes, losing their life savings and their sense of trust in the wor

Petitions  Mr. Speaker, I rise today on behalf of the many workers at Canadian Nuclear Laboratories who were told three years ago this September that they would be kicked out of the public service pension plan. They are calling on the government to make the legislative changes necessary in

Petitions  Mr. Speaker, I also rise on behalf of civilian members of the RCMP who had been told at one point that they would be transitioned into the public service and, of course, were concerned about the Phoenix pay system. They were then told that it would be postponed until Phoenix was

Main Estimates, 2018-19  Mr. Speaker, I thank the member for Edmonton West for his work on this file and for being a kind of fellow soldier in this kind of strange journey we have been on in this new territory of budget implementation votes.

Main Estimates, 2018-19  Mr. Speaker, I want to return to one of the general themes of tonight's debate, which has to do with the budget implementation vote and what that means for parliamentary accountability for government with respect to its spending.

Main Estimates, 2018-19  Mr. Speaker, I would say they spoke like true mandarins. One of the jobs of parliamentarians is to hold the government to account and it does not come as a surprise to me, and I say this without any disrespect to their careers or talent, that people who came up through government

Main Estimates, 2018-19  Mr. Speaker, I thank my colleague for raising the issue of departmental plans. This spending was not appearing in departmental plans. It undermined the study of the estimates process and was not in keeping with the procedure and practice of this place. I felt this was so serious

Main Estimates, 2018-19  Mr. Speaker, I thank my hon. colleague for having put some of the remarks of Kevin Page from a recent Hill Times article on the record. I think he has a lot of credibility.
