Criminal Code  Madam Speaker, I rise on a point of order. In regard to the vote on Bill S-233, I am asking for the consent of the House to reflect on the record that the vote in the House was unanimous in its opposition to organ harvesting. I erred when I used the app in my vote. I am looking f

Firearms  Madam Speaker, it is clear the Prime Minister and his Liberal front bench have again been caught trying to divide Canadians for political gain. Adding hunting rifles to Bill C-21 proves that the Prime Minister and his cabinet govern for themselves. First nations leaders from ac

Indigenous Affairs  Mr. Speaker, the Conservatives promote and believe in economic reconciliation. It is the solution to eradicating poverty and, with it, the social issues that poverty creates. Treating symptoms rather than the root cause has failed. It is time to fundamentally change that approa

National Council for Reconciliation Act  Mr. Speaker, the member for Winnipeg North very passionately talked about all of the great work the Liberals have done since 2015 and how there was a sense of urgency. With regard to this particular bill and the four calls to action that he speaks of, this matter was first intro

National Council for Reconciliation Act  Madam Speaker, the process was a very collaborative one at committee and I appreciate that process. The hon. member spoke a couple of times about the amendment that was made to call on the Prime Minister to respond to the annual report, rather than the minister, as was in the or

National Council for Reconciliation Act  Madam Speaker, just to follow up on the last question for the member, I note the time frame of the progress. It started in December 2017 with the Prime Minister announcing that he was going to pursue this national council for reconciliation. From January to June 2018, the interim

National Council for Reconciliation Act  Madam Speaker, there was an amendment made that shortened the total time frame from approximately 11 months to five months for the council to present its annual report and for the Prime Minister to respond to that report. Would she like to speak about how that raises the sense o

National Council for Reconciliation Act  Mr. Speaker, it has been a pleasure to work with my colleague from the Bloc at committee. We did get a lot of good work done. My question is very simple. Bill C-29 originally came to the House without any concrete measurables, without anything to measure. We talked a lot about t

National Council for Reconciliation Act  Mr. Speaker, my hon. colleague from the Bloc and I do work a lot together on the Standing Committee on Indigenous and Northern Affairs. I hope I got the context of the question accurate in the translation. Some of the things we did to improve the bill that we worked together on,

National Council for Reconciliation Act  Mr. Speaker, I do not know if this member has an abridged version, but I will try. I am just going to briefly summarize a couple of the things that we improved in the bill. The first was accountability, through the governance model that was there. The second thing we improved w

National Council for Reconciliation Act  Mr. Speaker, that is one of the frustrations that we sometimes talk about in our circles, this gap between words and actions. We see that often. We can talk about the Auditor General report that was released this week. Every time we ask a question of the government, the response

National Council for Reconciliation Act  Mr. Speaker, I do not know if my hon. colleague was listening to my story about Dalton, the young man of Pelican Lake, but do members know what? That was not from the extraction of any oil and gas. Their businesses are from the forestry business in northern Saskatchewan. I can t

National Council for Reconciliation Act  Mr. Speaker, it is always an honour to rise in this place and represent the people from Desnethé—Missinippi—Churchill River, and today as I speak to Bill C-29 and the creation of a national council for reconciliation, I suggest to this place that this is a continuation of a journ
