Natural Resources Madam Speaker, hundreds of thousands of oil field workers have lost their jobs in the last five years, and that has impacted their families. More than half a million more Canadians and their families are nervously watching during a pandemic as their government continues to act no
Natural Resources Madam Speaker, I address the House today as a follow up to a question I asked two weeks ago with respect to the dithering of the government, while Canada's oil and gas industry, our nation's pride, continued to face headwinds largely as a result the global pandemic, but also real
Natural Resources Madam Speaker, I believe you can hear me now. On March 25 of this year, at the beginning of a pandemic whose effects were multiplied by an ill-timed global oil price war between large state-owned enterprises half a world away, the then minister of finance and the Liberal govern
Petrochemical Industry Mr. Speaker, on Tuesday, the Government of Alberta announced the 10-year, $30-billion strategy to attract petrochemical and associated recycling investment to the province, with the goal of becoming an environmental and recycling leader in North America. Then, in a hastily called
Judges Act Madam Speaker, that is exactly the reason many of us ran for Parliament. We saw the way the government was rushing certain legislation through the House and the Senate, with no regard for process or for what Canadians actually needed in that process. That happened, and there was
Judges Act Madam Speaker, I thank my colleague from the Bloc Québécois. I do not disagree with him. I think our job here is to debate topics that affect Canadians. What happens at the other place is not our business and that is part of the process.
Judges Act Madam Speaker, I have been a member of the House since October of 2019. It is an honour to serve the residents of Calgary Centre and I am pleased that they chose me to represent their interests. The advancement of this issue is very important. I am elected to the House. I am not
Judges Act Madam Speaker, I rise today to speak to Bill C-3. This was originally introduced as Bill C-337 in 2017 by Rona Ambrose, who was the leader of the Conservative Party at that time, and who has doggedly pursued it even though she is no longer in the House of Commons. We have to giv
Natural Resources Mr. Speaker, 2,000 jobs lost at Suncor is devastating, and equally devastating is the non-answers we continue to get on these matters. This is five years of indifference from the government toward an oil and gas sector that has been the heart and soul of this country for decades.

Resumption of Debate on Address in Reply Madam Speaker, I want to ask about the record-low interest rate that the government is borrowing at currently. The policy rate of 0.25% was set by the bank.

Resumption of debate on Address in Reply Madam Speaker, as members know, I arrived in Ottawa after the last election, so I have been here almost a year. I have been through much of the re-education that is part of the Liberal government's strategy to show us how Canada really runs. However, I represent a great riding an
Resumption of debate on Address in Reply Madam Speaker, I thank my colleague from Quebec. I agree with him about the aerospace sector, which is vital not only to Quebec's economic activity but also to Canada's, I believe. This sector is important to the whole country. I do not know if it was mentioned in the throne sp
Resumption of debate on Address in Reply Madam Speaker, first of all, I will be splitting my time on this speech with the member for Kildonan—St. Paul. If I had to choose a heading for this year's Speech from the Throne, I would choose the Prime Minister's byline, “not the time for austerity”. I like it for so many re
Natural Resources Mr. Speaker, thousands of men and women depend on Newfoundland and Labrador's offshore industry to provide for their families, but the government's announcement on Friday left them behind once again. After suffering six months of job losses, this is the latest in a growing list o
