Foreign Affairs  Mr. Speaker, the Prime Minister just mentioned holding Iran to account. Last night the MP for Richmond Hill organized an event on the Hill for a regime-friendly Iranian lobbying group. Last week this same group publicly criticized the House of Commons for passing a motion condemn

International Trade  Mr. Speaker, the minister's kind words, about all parliamentarians standing with my friend's concerns about auto tariffs, are not matched by actions because the Liberal members of the trade committee just refused to meet after the imposition, or potential imposition, of U.S. auto

Request for Emergency Debate  Mr. Speaker, I make the request in accordance with Standing Order 52, with respect to an emergency debate on NAFTA, on trade with the United States, and on the overall special relationship with the United States, which is tattered at the moment. All parliamentarians should be abl

Firearms Act  Mr. Speaker, it is refreshing to hear passion from a member of Parliament when he speaks. I appreciate the member. He talked about the political history of his riding of Prince Albert, and after a dark Liberal period, there emerged a great Conservative leader from Prince Albert,

Firearms Act  Mr. Speaker, I appreciate the member's service in the Canadian Armed Forces. A number of veterans who are lawful users of firearms are probably wondering why the member does not have more of a background to answer the question from my colleague for Calgary Nose Hill. I will mak

Firearms Act  Mr. Speaker, my friend took painstaking lengths to talk about how there has been a rural and urban divide in debate on firearms. However, never did the debate get so unfair and so divisive than under Allan Rock, his cabinet colleague from the Chrétien government. They proposed th

National Security Act, 2017  Madam Speaker, no. In fact, I would invite that member to consult the testimony made by the last head of CSIS who, before he left his post about a year ago, had testified in front of one of our committees—I cannot remember which one—saying that powers of preventative arrest from

National Security Act, 2017  Madam Speaker, vigilance is right, and that is why I brought real examples into my speech here tonight. This is not about howling at the moon that I am a tough-on-crime guy. These are real cases, and they represent the reality that parliamentarians must face in balancing liberty

National Security Act, 2017  Madam Speaker, I wonder if that member would invite the same approach that the British use? Literally, if they walk out of their house, they are on television in Britain. With CCTV, the intrusion into lives is unparalleled. Is that what that member might be suggesting? Their secu

National Security Act, 2017  Madam Speaker, with respect to the major misgivings that he talks about, I highlighted the Prime Minister's remarks regarding preventative arrests. He supported the moves with respect to preventative arrests in Bill C-51, and I am sure he knew they did not offend the charter. As

National Security Act, 2017  Madam Speaker, it is a real pleasure for me to rise and speak to an important bill and issues related to public safety and security in general.

Foreign Affairs  Mr. Speaker, last week Canada refused to vote against a UN resolution that singled out Israel. The resolution had no mention of the inciting role Hamas played in the Gaza riots. Could the Prime Minister please inform this House of the reasons why he told our UN ambassador to ab

Main Estimates, 2018-19  Mr. Speaker, I love responding to my friend, the deputy House leader for the Liberals. I normally start off by reminding him that the omnibus budget implementation bill that is related to a lot of the debate tonight is something that he used to call an assault on democracy in all

Main Estimates, 2018-19  Mr. Speaker, we are talking about transparency. In the budget document, there were 456 mentions of investment spending. The member talked about the Canadian Armed Forces' plan of “Strong, Secure, Engaged”. For the largest department of the federal government, DND, the Canadian Fo

Carbon Pricing  Mr. Speaker, in Ontario, the auto industry competes with the U.S. for investment. In Michigan, there is no carbon tax, but in Ontario the Liberals are imposing a carbon tax scheme that is putting our auto sector at a disadvantage. Now the auto sector also faces the risks of tarif
