Employment  Mr. Speaker, clearly my friend across the way wants to be the parliamentary historian as well as the poet laureate here. Let us review some actual history. There is a big difference between voting against one's own government on a budget and voting in favour of an opposition mot

Employment  Mr. Speaker, we are learning today that the fisheries committee will no longer be able to benefit from the able service and chairmanship of the Liberal member for Coast of Bays—Central—Notre Dame. Indeed, that member was the only Liberal MP who had the courage to listen to his co

Budget Implementation Act, 2018, No. 1  Madam Speaker, I thank the member for voting against the government's misguided small business tax changes, at least initially. I had hoped he might have joined us in voting against this budget as well, which proceeds with the government's high tax agenda. I am sorry that will no

Budget Implementation Act, 2018, No. 1  Madam Speaker, I had a question for the parliamentary secretary of justice about his comment about gun crime, but I am sure my colleague will be able to comment on it as well, and will probably do a better job than the parliamentary secretary. The parliamentary secretary told us

Budget Implementation Act, 2018, No. 1  Mr. Speaker, it was very generous of my friend to congratulate the work of the caucus that she chairs, and I appreciate the Brampton restaurant recommendations. I can assure the member that next time I am door-knocking in Brampton, I will pull up that list and be sure to take adv

Budget Implementation Act, 2018, No. 1  Mr. Speaker, my colleague's speech specifically dealt with some of the gender elements in the budget. A friend of mine, a young woman, said to me that this appears to be a budget written for women by men. I think part of the reason many people see the budget in that way is that

Foreign Affairs  Mr. Speaker, China is becoming more and more aggressive, building military installations throughout the South China Sea, and today, holding live fire drills in the Taiwan Strait. Canada's government has thus far declined to condemn Chinese aggression in the South China Sea, and

Conflict of Interest and Ethics Commissioner's Report  Madam Speaker, one of the things that strikes my constituents about this particular issue is that the Ethics Commissioner found that the Prime Minister broke the law, and there was no imposition of a punitive sanction. At the same time, when the finance minister was found to have

Trans Mountain Expansion Project  Madam Speaker, the hon. member said that we did not build any pipelines. We built four pipelines and approved a fifth. More to the point, we approved every pipeline application that came forward. I would like to ask the member if he can name a project that we rejected or a pipeli

Trans Mountain Expansion Project  Madam Speaker, I have two quick points in response. First of all, I support the member's idea that we should put resource revenue aside for the future. That was Peter Lougheed's vision. Very clearly, it is not one shared by Rachel Notley, if we look at the deficit figures at pres

Trans Mountain Expansion Project  Madam Speaker, it is a pleasure to be able to participate in this important debate about pipelines. I will be sharing my time with the excellent member for Calgary Midnapore, who I know will have a lot to say with respect to her riding as well. This is a subject on which Conserv

Budget Implementation Act, 2018, No. 1  Madam Speaker, I certainly enjoyed getting to know the member, the NDP House leader, and others better on our recent trip. I could go further into that, but as we established, what happens in Ramallah stays in Ramallah. Do I agree that the Liberals have broken their promises? Ab

Budget Implementation Act, 2018, No. 1  Madam Speaker, my hope is that we will have a Conservative government after 2019, which will balance the budget in due course. However, if, against the odds, we are stuck with Liberal governments for longer than that, I think we will have to wait for our grandchildren at least be

Budget Implementation Act, 2018, No. 1  Madam Speaker, sometimes in political debate we get caught up in the jargon and use phrases that have been focus grouped in detail but are not at all clear as to what they actually mean. The member spoke about investing in Canadians. A suggestion for investing in Canadians is t
