Budget Implementation Act, 2018, No. 1  Madam Speaker, again, it varies. The example I gave is of someone who is injured at 25 in Afghanistan. We look at the formulas.

Fisheries Act  Mr. Speaker, the member gives me a great opportunity. He says there is a lot to talk about, and there is. The Conservatives cut protection. Let us think about this. They cut protection of our fisheries and our habitats. That is unbelievable. On top of that, the former Conservati
