Conflict of Interest and Ethics Commissioner  Mr. Speaker, on division we usually find out how people would like to vote. I was going to vote in favour of two of the commissioners and against one. Is that permissible?

Salaries Act  Mr. Speaker, I find this legislation remarkably inconsequential. I am torn about how I should vote on it quite honestly. I really do have a philosophical problem with the idea that we do better in attracting people when we pay more. I frankly think every minister and every memb

Criminal Code  Mr. Speaker, I agree with my friend that the bill is moving forward and removing things that are archaic. I wonder why, though, we have not dealt with something called the Zero Tolerance for Barbaric Cultural Practices Act from the last Parliament which made illegal things that a

Canada Elections Act  Madam Speaker, I thank my colleague from Terrebonne. I am absolutely in favour of this bill. The process for a bill such as this affords me my only opportunity in the House to speak at second reading stage. It is clear that public funding is the best way to finance political pa

Salaries Act  Madam Speaker, the last exchange reminded me so much of a previous Parliament, when I asked the Conservative government, when it was adding 30 new MPs to our ranks, if it would not make sense to reduce, pro rata, all the salaries of MPs across the board so that the overall budget

Violence Against Women  Mr. Speaker, I want to thank all of my colleagues. Today remains a day of tragedy, a day of immense sadness, for today marks the 28th anniversary of a terrible tragedy in this country. It is almost unbelievable that it has been 28 years.
