Resumption of Debate on Address in Reply  Madam Speaker, I want to point out that four pipelines were built under the Stephen Harper government. It is very clear to see, through my hon. colleague's words, that unity is the last thing the Liberals want in Canada. They are literally pitting one region against another, and

Resumption of Debate on Address in Reply  Madam Speaker, I agree that we need to support our resource sector, and no doubt we all can agree on that. However, to say that western alienation is not happening is very inaccurate. The billions of dollars that were transferred from my province of Alberta, because of the resour

Resumption of Debate on Address in Reply  Madam Speaker, the Prime Minister and the Liberal government have framed the Speech from the Throne as a necessary and updated vision for the country. Before I address the speech directly, it is important for Canadians to remember that we are debating a new Speech from the Throne

Natural Resources  Mr. Speaker, on March 24, the former finance minister told Albertans that help for our hurting oil and gas sector was “hours, possibly days” away. That was around 190 days ago, and still nothing. Albertans watched last week's throne speech anxiously awaiting a plan, any kind of

Royal Canadian Mounted Police  Mr. Speaker, it has been six months since the World Sikh Organization reached out to Liberal ministers about a prejudiced beard policy against Sikh and Muslim RCMP officers. No other jurisdiction in Canada, including the Peel region, has implemented this ridiculous policy. It is

Petitions  Mr. Speaker, I am honoured to rise in the House today to present a petition highlighting the plight of Uighur Muslims in China. Uighur Muslims are being persecuted and going through unimaginable hardships under the Communist Party of China's dictatorship, from forced sterilizat

Royal Canadian Mounted Police  Mr. Speaker, Sikh and Muslim RCMP officers were pulled from active duty due to a beard policy, which is an obvious discrimination against ethnic minorities. The World Sikh Organization reached out to Liberal ministers Blair and Bains months ago with no response. When made public,

Citizenship Act  Madam Speaker, I would like to focus on reconciliation. The Conservatives know the best way to reconcile is to get indigenous people back to work. We should give them jobs and sovereignty by giving them an economy that can grow, help their kids and help people in trouble. What w

Citizenship Act  Madam Speaker, dragging things on and on brings up the Teck project all over again. I thank the member for his comments and question, but we do have more pressing matters. The Teck project needed to be approved and the Liberals dragged their feet on it. They should have voted wi

Citizenship Act  Madam Speaker, it showed we were willing to work with the recommendations. Ninety-four recommendations were brought forward and very slowly we have come to nine. This shows that we were willing to work right away with whatever recommendations we had. It was a big accomplishment f

Natural Resources  Mr. Speaker, we have heard a lot about the blockades that have done so much damage to our economy, but there is one thing that seems to be consistently overlooked. We have not heard the Prime Minister acknowledge, even once, that this project has support from the Wet'suwet'en e

Teck Frontier Mine Project  Mr. Speaker, some of our colleagues have been spreading much misinformation about the Teck Frontier mine project, so I want to take a moment to correct some of it. Teck is indeed building a 260,000 barrel-a-day mine in northern Alberta and will invest $20 billion to build it. Al
