Budget Implementation Act, 2017, No. 2  Mr. Speaker, CETA is the free trade agreement between Canada and the European Union. It was an agreement that was negotiated under our former Conservative government. When the Liberals got their hands on that agreement, they made a big error in judgment. They agreed with the EU t

Budget Implementation Act, 2017, No. 2  Mr. Speaker, although the member and I occasionally will disagree on trade policy, one thing we do agree on is that Canadians have lost trust and confidence in the Liberal government. More particular, they have lost trust in the finance minister, who has the most senior role in t

Budget Implementation Act, 2017, No. 2  Mr. Speaker, it is a pleasure to again engage in debate on the budget implementation act.

Cannabis Act  Mr. Speaker, I will say this. The member suggested that we in the Conservative Party want to make the use of marijuana criminal. Here is a news flash: the use and selling of marijuana in Canada is illegal right now. We want to preserve the state of the law as it is. The best thin

Cannabis Act  Mr. Speaker, I am thankful for the opportunity to engage in this debate. Bill C-45 is, of course, the bill that would legalize marijuana in Canada. When we talk about legalization, we have to understand what this legislation would do. It would normalize the use of marijuana in e

John Davidson  Mr. Speaker, yesterday, one of Abbotsford's finest died in the line of duty. Sadly, John Davidson, a member of the Abbotsford Police Department, was killed doing what he loved to do; protecting our community. This is a defining and tragic moment for Abbotsford. There are very few

Budget Implementation Act, 2017, No. 2  Madam Speaker, when we were in government under Stephen Harper, we looked very carefully at the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank and said no. Why? It was because it did not promote Canada's interests. It was not going to create jobs in Canada. As my colleague said, it would b

Budget Implementation Act, 2017, No. 2  Mr. Speaker, what the member conveniently left out of his speech was any reference at all to balanced budgets.
