Petitions  Mr. Speaker, my second petition is about the Canada summer jobs program. While MPs are enjoying their summer, many not-for-profit organizations will be struggling as a result of their now inability to access funding on an equal basis as a result of the Liberals' summer jobs value

Petitions  Mr. Speaker, it is a pleasure for me to present two petitions today. The first is in support of my private member's bill, Bill C-350, that deals with forced organ harvesting, as well as a similar bill in the Senate, Bill S-240. I note that the Senate was on the verge of passing

Foreign Affairs  Mr. Speaker, yesterday the foreign affairs minister finally acknowledged genocide of Yazidis at the hands of Daesh in Syria and Iraq. However, the government has yet to acknowledge genocide against Christian communities in the same areas, Assyrian, Chaldean and other Christians w

Employment  Mr. Speaker, with all due respect to my friend across the way, I think the refutation that I am about to give is probably unnecessary since it is obvious from what he said that he does not fundamentally understand the question. He said not to worry because the Liberals are spendi

Employment  Mr. Speaker, it is a pleasure for me to have an opportunity tonight to address the attacks on religious liberty and freedom of conscience that we see from the current government. The Liberals have altered the Canada summer jobs program to require that any applicants check a box i

National Security Act, 2017  Madam Speaker, I addressed it to some extent in my remarks, in terms of emphasizing, first, the fact that all of us agree in the House that torture Is unacceptable and, second, specifically that most of the evidence about torture as a tool for obtaining information demonstrates t

National Security Act, 2017  First, Madam Speaker, in terms of what I was involved in with Mr. Harper, most of my duties in PMO simply involved fetching coffee and photocopying, but one has to start somewhere. On the issue of the legislation that the member spoke of, Canadians were very disappointed that t

National Security Act, 2017  Madam Speaker, my friend raised a few issues. She made a distinction that I do not actually agree is a distinction. It is conceptually a distinction, but in practice not as clearly. She talked about agencies having the ability to share information and on the other hand whether or

National Security Act, 2017  Madam Speaker, I thank my colleague for her committed work on this issue and so many others. The case she raised should underline for us the reality that we face real and significant threats here in Canada and that we should not close our eyes to those threats. Closing our eyes

National Security Act, 2017  Mr. Speaker, before I get into the substantive remarks, I want to respond to an interesting comment made by my friend from Hull—Aylmer, who was asking in a question about actions taken by the previous government. There were many provisions in Bill C-51 that were aimed at making C

Main Estimates, 2018-19  Mr. Speaker, my friend across the way spoke about good government at the provincial level. If we deliver government at the provincial level like the current government has, apparently we end up being able to hold caucus meetings in a van. That is hopefully where it is headed as w

Main Estimates, 2018-19  Mr. Speaker, the member spoke about how I and other members might use their office budgets. I think after that speech, we are certainly very interested in an itemized listing of how that member uses his hospitality budgets. We will look forward to that in due course. Maybe we alr

Foreign Affairs  Mr. Speaker, let us be eminently clear to the parliamentary secretary. When the Liberals refuse to stand with our allies we will challenge them to do better. That is our job. That is what we were sent here to do. One wonders why they are so bent on getting on the UN Security Coun
