Resumption of Debate on Address in Reply  Mr. Speaker, since this is the first time I rise in the House of Commons, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of my constituents in Longueuil—Saint-Hubert for placing their trust in me. I hope that I will be able to live up to that trust in the coming years, the ne

Housing  Mr. Speaker, as Pierre Falardeau used to say, we always go too far for those who are going nowhere. Today, 200 people came to protest in Ottawa because the government is really going nowhere with its national housing strategy. FRAPRU and the Réseau solidarité itinérance du Qué

Housing  Mr. Speaker, I may be new here, but I am not an idiot. I understand that there is nothing encouraging in that answer. The federal strategy does not meet the needs of the people who are hoping and waiting for social housing. Quebec's National Assembly has unanimously called on th

Resumption of debate on Address in Reply  Madam Speaker, I thank the member for Lévis—Lotbinière for his speech. I would simply like to point out to the hon. member that the Bloc Québécois campaigned heavily on environmental issues. We got 32 members elected in Quebec by talking about significantly reducing greenhouse g

Housing  Mr. Speaker, Quebec is currently experiencing the worst housing crisis in 15 years. The money to build social housing is lying dormant in the government's coffers in Ottawa because the government is fuelling the umpteenth dispute over Quebec's jurisdictions, despite the fact that

Housing  Mr. Speaker, the housing crisis in Quebec is actually two-pronged. Available housing is rare and rents are expensive. Currently in Quebec, more than 82,000 households spend more than 80% of their income on housing. Back home we call that dire poverty. Will the government listen

The Patriotes  Mr. Speaker, Saturday was a day of mourning for Quebec. On February 15, 1839, five of our heroes, five Patriotes, were hanged at the Pied-du-Courant prison. They were executed for defending their nation's freedom. François-Marie-Thomas Chevalier de Lorimier, Charles Hindelang,

Business of Supply  Madam Speaker, I thank my colleague for his wonderful speech. He gave a lengthy explanation of everything the Liberal government has done in the past to promote reconciliation with indigenous peoples and how it will work in the future to improve its relationships with the Wet'su

Business of Supply  Madam Speaker, I thank my colleague for his wonderful speech. Canada is certainly in the midst of a serious crisis. The economy is paralyzed in my riding and across the entire Montérégie region. If the blockades are not lifted soon, there will be some serious consequences. Ther

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, I very much appreciated my colleague's intervention. I do not think that anyone in the House is against the idea of providing dental care to Quebeckers and Canadians. There is just one massive problem: Health is a provincial jurisdiction. My colleague was talking a

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, it is fascinating to listen to my colleague talk about federal-provincial collaboration on health matters. I do not know why we are debating this topic today, since health is a provincial jurisdiction. This motion is rather odd. That said, my colleague talks a lot a

Housing  Mr. Speaker, I have a very serious question. We recently learned that $4.3 billion was spent under the national housing strategy. How much of that $4.3 billion was invested in Quebec? Zero, not one penny, zilch, nada, nothing. There is still another $1.4 billion available, but t

Housing  Mr. Speaker, when someone cannot put a roof over their head, they wind up in the street, and this in a country with a government that goes on and on about how it has lifted thousands of people out of poverty. The government's current actions are forcing thousands of Quebeckers to

Canada-United States-Mexico Agreement Implementation Act  Madam Speaker, I thank my Quebec colleague for his very interesting speech. I agree with him on the whole issue of supply management. In Quebec, we have felt the impact of treaties on supply management. The treaties that Canada has signed have always come at the expense of supply

Canada-United States-Mexico Agreement Implementation Act  Madam Speaker, I thank my colleague for his speech. Generally speaking, what I am noticing this afternoon from my Conservative colleagues' comments is a wilful blindness with respect to protecting aluminum. They seem to have difficulty understanding that my Bloc Québécois collea
