Committees of the House  Mr. Speaker, it gives me great pleasure to rise in the House today to take part in this very interesting debate.

Budget Implementation Act, 2017, No. 1  Mr. Speaker, the hon. member gave a very interesting speech and touched on a lot of key points.

The Budget  Mr. Speaker, what is important about EI and the 18 months for maternity leave is that it would be an opportunity for Canadian families that want to stay at home a bit longer to support their families. Those are decisions they take as families. There are all kinds of decisions. O
